CODE OF ETHICS

We follow the code of ethics guidelines laid out by Ausdance

  1. Studio principals will have clearly defined aims and goals. 

  2. Studio principals will make sure that the school and its staff are capable of providing any services claimed.

  3. Studio principals will employ teaching staff with the experience, knowledge or qualifications required for the range of levels and techniques being taught. Student teachers will be trained and supervised to ensure the school’s teaching standards are maintained.

  4. Studio principals will provide effective assessment procedures and will ensure that students and parents receive, or have access to, advice when necessary.

  5. Studio principals will conform to sound business practice and provide an efficient fee system.

  6. Studio principals and individual teachers will ensure that class sizes are suitable for the levels and techniques being taught. Students in each class will be of a similar age or standard.

  7. Studio principals and individual teachers will ensure that facilities provided:

    • conform with minimum safety and space requirements

    • have suitable flooring, with a safe surface designed and constructed to minimise the risk of injury.

  8. Individual teachers will use effective and flexible teaching skills to create a productive learning environment. Individual teachers will:

    • strive to communicate a love of dance

    • show professional attitudes, including punctuality, reliability and responsible care of students

    • strive to develop self-discipline and self-motivation in the students

    • encourage and support the individual in the class situation

    • present general concepts of movement as well as those of a particular dance style.

  9. Individual teachers will recognise the role of dance in the development of the whole person. They will also seek to recognise and develop each student’s potential, whether it lies in dance or related fields, and offer appropriate guidance for further progress.

  10. Individual teachers will endeavour to recognise physical anomalies, modifying their teaching and seeking medical advice when necessary. The teaching and choreography must be anatomically safe, and teachers must be prepared to deal with medical emergencies.

  11. Individual teachers will strive to develop in the students an appreciation of the characteristic style of each specific technique taught.

  12. Individual teachers will take responsibility for seeking more knowledge in all aspects of their work.
