Australian Dance Vision (ADV) is a member based non-profit Dance Organisation. ADV is a corporate affiliate of the Australian Dance Institute (ADi).
ADV is the original creator of what was called the Australian Dance Assessment Programme (adap), now the ADi-Endorsed Syllabus. The syllabus is designed for creative, flexible and distinctly Australian dance teaching. Assessment methodology has been developed by professional teachers with backgrounds in most professional dance teaching associations. The syllabus and assessment methodology together provides a new holistic approach to training dancers and providing professional development for dance teachers.
The Australian Institute of Classical Dance was formed in 1991 by Marilyn Jones following her receipt of a prestigious Creative Arts Fellowship from the Australian Government.
The Institute is a non-profit organisation with a board composed of eminent members of the dance profession. It was set up to oversee and encourage the development of Australian classical ballet.
The Institute which has branches in Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia and New South Wales, also acts as an assessment body, initiates workshops, runs summer schools, conventions and seminars and offers scholarships to dancers.
BAL aims to offer syllabi that provide encouragement and success to the average student as well as extending the more gifted student. The syllabi (particularly Tap and Jazz) incorporate a variety of styles, from the traditional to the newest trends, with the aim to develop versatile dancers.
BAL’s dedicated, friendly and approachable team is committed to offering technical support to teachers at all times. BAL aims to provide teachers with all their syllabus needs from one organisation, thereby reducing duplication of examination sessions, reducing membership fees, limiting administration for teachers, and reducing costs for students by eliminating the need for different examination clothing requirements.
