Studying by Distance Learning – Student – Master of Arts in Education (Dance Teaching)

I graduated from my BA (Hons) Art and Teaching of Ballet at the RAD in 2003 and felt that I was fully enriched by the comprehensive programme. It prepared me well for the work I was undertaking in a national pre-tertiary arts school in Singapore. There were many postgraduate programmes in education, however I wanted one that was specifically catered towards dance, and the RAD’s Masters programme was the one for me. Through my experience as a learner on the programme, I experimented with varied approaches in the classrooms and my student’s responses taught me to reflect more deeply on my position as an educator and life-long learner. Once I graduate, I hope to guide the younger dance teachers on my team as we work together towards developing an arts-infused education in Singapore.
