The Australian Ballet’s education program is bringing the brand-new initiative STEAMDANCE to the Year 3 students. Beginning this Monday 31st July, the Year 3 students will participate in 5 workshops with the Australian Ballet company.
STEAMDANCE is a dance-education approach to learning about STEM subjects including Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. Designed by The Australian Ballet, this innovative and creative initiative supports students learning curriculum subjects through the arts. The STEAMDANCE program is led by The Australian Ballet’s dance education team who are specialist educators and professional dancers.
The program works in partnership with teachers to support the curriculum through a series of workshops and performances in schools to foster critical and creative thinking, literacy, numeracy, individual and cooperative learning and problem solving in students.
This program will support our Integrated topic ‘Sideshow Alley’ through investigating push and pull forces through movement.
The sessions will run each Monday and will conclude on Friday 1st September with a performance for the Year 1 and 2 children to showcase what we have learnt.
Stay tuned for more over the coming weeks.
The Year 3 Team
