This is the entry point for all learners. Delivered online, over four weeks, An Introduction to Creative Ageing through Dance introduces learners to the theory and practice of safely teaching and facilitating dance and expressive movement to older people, as well as offering a sneak-peak into the different professional environments in which dance can be taught to older learners.

Incorporating downloadable resources, video interviews (with full transcripts) and case studies, and referring to the latest research, the Introductory Training outlines the benefits of dance for older people, and the unique challenges faced in teaching dance and expressive movement to older cohorts of learners. Using quizzes, reflective tasks, and discussion trees, it also invites learners to reflect on their own experiences of creativity, ageing, movement, and dance.

Once completed, learners receive a Certificate of Completion from Ausdance Victoria.
