Kay Taylor teaching JWAAD Teaching Diploma OCN accredited teacher training courseTo register, your personal technique must be of Intermediate 1 level or above, and you must have a technique assessment with a JWAAD Professional Training Tutor.

This Diploma has been running for almost 16 years. Through that time it has been developed and all the courses are constantly reviewed and updated. There are 4 units in total:

• 'Safe Delivery of Belly Dance Classes'
• 'Understanding Music Used within Belly Dance'
• 'The Influence of History & Culture upon Belly Dance'
'Teaching Methods Used Within Belly Dance'

We recommend that you complete 'Safe Delivery of Belly Dance Classes' first. This course includes a technique assessment. Once you have successfully completed this course and had your technique assessed as Intermediate 1 level or higher, you can register for the JWAAD Teaching Diploma, and take the other three units, with the 'Teaching Methods for Belly Dance' unit last. You cannot register for 'Teaching Methods for Belly Dance' until you have completed the other three units.

It is not possible to take the 'Teaching Methods for Belly Dance' unit unless you are registered for the Teaching Diploma.

If you want to register for a unit but have not yet completed 'Safe Delivery of Belly Dance Classes', you will need to arrange for a technique assessment from a JWAAD Tutor.

In addition to these units, you will have to complete a minimum of three private lessons/technique assessments through the study period (unless you have completed these as part of the Performance Diploma).

If you are a registered Diploma student, additional workshops at Intermediate level are provided on each unit to develop your personal technique and style.

If you have successfully completed the Performance Diploma, you will have already complete two of the units for the Teaching Diploma (History and Culture and Understanding Music).

We have designed these courses/units to dovetail into each other and to provide a complete training at professional level, so that dancers can work professionally with confidence and expertise.
