WORKSHOPS FOR TEACHERS
Proudly Sponsored By
The Teachers VIP Room!
COST | Q&A TOPICS | YOUR FACILITATOR
*Due to Covid-19 restrictions and venue capacity we will need to limit the number of people in the Teachers VIP Room. For 2020, A Teachers Pass will in essence be a Chaperone's pass for $90, and Professional Development Workshops will be sold per session.
Rather than attending as a chaperone, we understand that the Australian Dance Festival represents a fantastic opportunity to network and learn from your industry peers and leaders.
As an industry, dance studios and teachers have had to show a heroic amount of resilience and strength to pivot our businesses and teaching systems and adapt to Covid-19. In 2020, the Teachers Room will be a place to share our experiences, heal our trauma, and gain knowledge and skills to adapt and prepare for the future.
We are working on the workshop schedule for the Teachers Room and aim to have it published by mid-late July. Each session will be priced at approx $25-$30 with some special workshops priced at a higher price.
Anyone who has already purchased a Teachers Price prior to 22 June 2020 will have their pass converted to a Chaperone pass worth $90 and have the option of either a refund for the balance, or a credit for the individual workshop sessions.
See below the 2019 Teachers VIP room Schedule as a Reference.
The 2020 schedule will be released in mid - late July.

Who's The Boss of the Teacher's VIP Room? Gabrielle Robinson!
We have appointed a very special person to champion our Teachers' Room. We are proud to announce our partnership with Gabrielle Robinson from Empower Dance.
Gabby positions herself in the Teacher's VIP Room as the facilitator who is curious about how we all contribute to the industry and how we can bring more impact. She brings a perspective that serves, supports and educates all who are present.
Gabrielle is uniquely placed to champion the Teacher's VIP Room as she has the perspective and experience of being;
A Dance Teacher
A Full Time Studio Owner
A Business Coach
A NLP Practitioner
The Director of her own Registered Training Organisation
Since being involved with the Australian Dance Festival in 2015, Gabrielle has expressed a passion for the event and has a vision for how the event can be used to help dance teachers.
"After being involved in these incredible dance teachers sessions last year, it occurred to me that dance teachers from all genres, have very few opportunities to network, gather information and build their teachers tool kit.
It is becoming increasingly important for dance teachers to keep their finger on the pulse and be committed to their own continuous improvement.
It's the teachers that are present in these sessions, and spend time with prominent people in the industry, that are developing the new generation of dance brilliance and creating a strong shift for the future of the dance industry"
- Gabrielle Robinson
About Gabrielle Robinson:
With over 25 years of experience in the studio, Gabrielle Robinson has worked with companies, studios and in schools, dancing and running workshops, programs and classes.
The extent of her knowledge far outreaches the two studio locations, 1200 students and 40 staff she coaches and employs. Being the director of South Australia’s original self built Registered Training Organization, and the largest private provider of year 11 and 12 dance, Gabrielle takes pride in her ability to build culture and community around her. A registered RAD teacher she also is a service provider for studios in need of support and has consulted for RAD regional advisory panel Ausdance SA.
As a side note… Gabrielle has extensive qualifications which she puts to good use with businesses needing developing and a fresh approach. Business coaching, and health coaching brought together by her training in NLP has opened the space for her to create a dance specific APP, a practice companion for teachers, which is linked to a website for students to take home to practice with. Aside from the massive improvement in the quality of student work, the Buddy income generator is also a fantastic opportunity for studios to grow their profits.
