OUR TEACHERS

iDance strives to provide students with teachers who are passionate, reliable, experienced and responsible. We employ teaching staff who hold the required experience, knowledge and/or qualifications for the styles, levels, and age groups being taught.

Teachers use effective teaching methods to create a productive learning environment for every student, whilst maintaining a strict, disciplined, and industry related environment.

 

Assistant teachers are also assigned to assist in younger classes.

 

We are also very excited to be able to offer some of our senior students 'Teacher Training', which really rounds off their dance education, enabling them to be able to teach classes when they are finished their Year 12 studies and off to further education or work.  In 2018 iDance will be offering certified Teacher Training, amalgamating on the job training at the same time - exciting things to come!

 

All staff members all hold a 'Working with Children Check' and at least one staff member on site at all times is First Aid qualified.

Jacqueline Kornmann B.Ed

FOUNDER & PRINCIPAL

Echuca's much-loved, trusted and admired Jacqui Kornmann has had over 35 years teaching experience, along with 40 years of training, including professional dancing abroad with IM Co. Japan. 

Qualifications include B.Ed, Assoc.Dip., Cecchetti, Membership with Australian Teachers Of Dance and is registered to teach Australian Conservatoire of Ballet (Vaganova), Membership and Dance Skills set trainer (Ausdance), Certified Kinesiological Stretching coach, VET and VCE dance teacher, Teacher of Modern Dance Education Syllabus, Cert.4 in training and assessment, First Aid Certificate, Echuca College Dance Teacher, VCE and VET dance teacher and Wakakirri and Rock Eisteddfod co-ordinator since 2005. Jacqui has been an assessor, examining  for VCE Dance Performance examinations in Melbourne. . 

As founder and principal of iDance, Jacqui encourages a non-competitive environment in which the attainment of personal, creative, performance, physical and technical skills are just as important as having fun. 

Jacqui agree's that competitions are a wonderful opportunity and foundation in stage performance.  Children love to dress up and perform while meeting new friends and working in a team environment, for fun.  On a personal level this training allows students to deal with disappointment as well as success in a controlled and nurturing environment, strengthening that foundation for their lives to come.

 

Jacqui wishes for all of her students and their audience to truly express as well as experience that beautiful love of dance, that is inside us all!
