Arts Education - An Introduction to Safe Dance Practice in MOE Schools

An Introduction to Safe Dance Practice in MOE Schools

The National Arts Council (NAC) and the Ministry of Education (MOE) value the importance of safe dance practice. It is of utmost importance that dance Co-Curricular Activity (CCA) instructors acquire the essential knowledge and skills of safe dance practice so that sound training approaches can be adopted to help students build dance skills progressively, with minimal risk of injury.

MOE, in partnership with NAC, has appointed Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) to organise a mandatory baseline training course, “An Introduction to Safe Dance Practice in MOE Schools” for all dance CCA instructors in schools. This introductory course aims to equip instructors with basic working knowledge and skills, to ensure students’ well-being and optimal learning.

Course Information

With effect from 1 January 2021, all instructors applying to be a MOE-registered instructor with specialisation in Dance, are required to have completed the course.

All dance instructors are encouraged to register early and complete the course as soon as possible to avoid possible delays to their application to be an MOE-instructor. It is recommended for existing MOE dance instructors to register for the course at least six months before the expiry of their MOE-instructor registration, to allow ample time for the re-registration process and prevent disruption to their contracts with schools.

Please refer to the attached FAQs and NAFA's website for more information, including course dates, registration and fees.
