A PROGRESSIVE PEDAGOGY WITH AN AGE APPROPRIATE CURRICULUM

GAIT offers two programmes tailored to the age group a child belongs to:

Early Childhood Programme

Our EC curriculum integrates the basic concepts that children are taught in school and uses them to create an experiential learning process. The EC programme focuses on music, story-telling, academic concepts among other techniques to bring out creative thought and stimulate communication skills. Our programme also results in better social skills, self-esteem and cognitive growth.

Grade Courses

The GAIT Grade Foundation Course addresses the four key concepts of body, space, rhythm and expression. It aims at making young students understand movement in all its multi-dimensional facets using a series of activities. Children learn to follow instructions, share, co-operate, take turns and experience personal success through movement in a group setting.

PASSIONATE TEACHERS WHO EMBRACE EXPERIMENTAL METHODS

Our trainers are equipped to conduct effective creative movement sessions that are joyful and thought provoking, as opposed to taking classes of a single dance form. They bring to the setting a unique combination of international frameworks set within Indian sensibilities. Conversant in a plethora of fields such as Kalaripayattu, Contemporary dance, Release Technique and Physical Theatre, our trainers are constantly upgrading their skills with regards to technique. Focus is also on facilitation skills, personality development and communication skills.

Trainers undergo intense preparation and practise all the lessons in the curriculum. Various role playing sessions are conducted so that the trainers are equipped to handle different learning needs and situations that may arise in the classroom. Each lesson is discussed in detail, including the learning outcomes and feedback questions to be asked in the end. To be a good GAIT trainer, facilitation skills are crucial as well. These include the ability to have a wide vision, good observational and probing skills, non-judgemental attitude, being non-directive along with good teaching skills. Special inputs required for class management, discipline, noise control and basic first-aid are also included in their training. Each trainer's performance is monitored regularly to ensure the highest standard of delivery.
