I completed the I-PATH Teaching Diploma in Performing Arts before becoming a member of this wonderful organisation. I now teach I-PATH syllabi in my school and my students love it. I-PATH are so forward thinking and are a true part of the ever evolving dance and theatre industries. Highly recommended!
