Membership

Membership of the Institute

The Australian Institute of Classical Dance (AICD) survives based on the support that we receive from our Teachers and our Affiliate Members.   Our ability to provide opportunities and support for young Australia Dancers, Choreographers and Teachers is predicated upon our ability to generate funds to support the many facets of the organisation, including the Houston and International Scholarships and our Dance Creation Choreographers Event.

Membership Types

There are four different membership types for the AICD:

  • Teachers Membership
  • New AICD Teacher
  • Joint Teachers Membership
  • Affiliate Membership
  • Student Membership

Memberships are for the period of the calendar year ie  1 – January to 31 – December.

Teachers Membership

Teachers Membership covers a single teacher for one year and is required for every Associate Diploma, Licentiate Diploma or Fellow of the AICD that is teaching the Borovansky.   Your membership entitles you to participate in the day to day activities of the Institute including participation in personal development, teaching the Borovansky syllabus, purchasing syllabus materials and receipt of our new periodic newsletter.

New AICD Teacher

If you are applying to the AICD to become an Associate Teacher you need to do the following:

  1. We recommend that you have a Teacher/Mentor that is familiar with teaching the Borovansky Syllabus. Typically this is the teacher that you completed your Advanced 1 Exam with.  If you are transferring from another syllabus or you are unable to find a Teacher/Mentor, please contact the State Coordinator for your state. See the Contact Us Page for details.
  2. Get a Working with Children Check that is appropriate for the State in which you are teaching.
  3. When you are ready to perform your Associate Diploma Demonstration Class,  send your CV; a Reference from your Teacher/Mentor; and the Application Form to us.  The Application Form may be downloaded here. 
  4. Complete the payment for your assessment class by using the online membership form to complete a payment for “New AICD teacher”. 
  5. We will subsequently confirm whether your application has been successful or unsuccessful and provide feedback to you on your demonstration class to assist you.

If you are transferring from another Syllabus as an Associate or Licentiate, you need to do the following:

  1. Get a Working with Children Check that is appropriate for the State in which you are teaching.
  2. Send us a copy of the completed Application Form, your CV and copies of your Syllabus Certification. The Application Form  may be downloaded here.

Joint Teachers Membership

Joint Teachers Membership recognises that there are many schools that have two regular teachers.  With Joint Teachers Membership, at the time of enrollment, you may nominate an additional teacher to be associated with your membership.  Your membership entitles you and your nominated second teacher to participate in the day to day activities of the Institute including participation in personal development, teaching the Borovansky syllabus, purchasing syllabus materials and receipt of our new periodic newsletter.  To complete your Joint Membership, please complete our online form here. 

Affiliate Membership

While membership of the Institute is mandatory for anyone teaching the Borovansky syllabus, we also have an Affiliate Membership for those that are wishing to support the goals of the Institute without becoming a teacher.  Your membership entitles you to receive our new periodic newsletter and to participate in events hosted by the AICD as notified in the newsletter.  To complete your Affiliate Membership, please complete our online form here.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Do I need to be a Teacher?   Membership of the institute does not require you to be a teacher.  Being a supporter of our thriving organisation has its own merits.
  • Does my Teacher membership cover all my teachers? No.  Teachers Membership covers a single teacher.  Joint Membership covers two teachers at the same school.
  • Can I teach the AICD syllabus without being a member of the Institute?  If you are a teacher of the AICD Syllabus, you must be a member of the Institute.
