The 5-Year Certificate Program
The RAUD Instructor Curriculum looks to incorporate all aspects of Ukrainian instruction that may or may not have been missed as a dancer grows into the instructor role. All facets from classical training, to teaching turns and tricks, regional basics and breakdown, as well as character evolution, and prop usage will feature.
This Virtual Instructor Intensive features the full Beginner Curriculum. In two days of online instruction, Lana, Shannon, and Andrii will bring you up to speed on what a Beginner class setting throughout the year might look like. We will take you through all of the classes as per our in-studio Intensive, just online!
Some understanding of classical training is a must for all instructors who want to ensure regular improvement in the classes they teach. The Rodovid Curriculum combines the best of the Royal Academy of Dance and the Vaganova methods to reach those goals. In addition to tips to help with body awareness, learn the proper positions, basic steps, and exercises at the barre and in the centre.
Ukrainian academic dance is why Ukrainian dancers sign up for your class in the first place! Let us not only walk you through the best steps to teach at this level, but the best way to teach them using our step-by-step method. You’ll learn how to breakdown steps so that you understand the mechanics and can then pass that on to your students. We’ll also work on possible combinations that might be appropriate for this group, with practical exercises that you will engage in. Finally, terminology is something we as teachers don’t always use properly. Let’s fix that! We’ll give you a list of the proper terms as well as any variation that may exist.
In a classroom-type setting, we’ll discuss options/games to engage dancers in understanding of different rhythms, improvisation, and acting. We’ll discuss ideas for costuming, props and storylines, regional characteristics, how to create a class for different levels of Beginner, and building choreography.
Whether this is your first year teaching, or you’ve been at it for 20 years, the Rodovid Academy of Ukrainian Dance Curriculum is an amazing resource to brush up on Ukrainian technique, remember why classical training is so important, understand how to breakdown steps and build combinations, and so much more.
Join us – your students will thank you!
Each year, we’ll look at a different level, building on that which you will have learnt the year before. Following the Beginner Curriculum in January 2021, we are offering the Junior Curriculum in February 2021. In the summer of 2021, we turn our attention to Intermediate, with Senior and Master levels to follow in 2022 and 2023.
A certificate will be issued following the completion of the 5-year program. Educational materials will be provided at the Intensive, with regular updates online at the start of the new dance season each September.
