Membership of the Institute
The Australian Institute of Classical Dance (AICD) survives based on the support that we receive from our Friend Members and our Teachers. Our ability to provide opportunities and support for young Australian 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.
There are four different membership types for the AICD:
- Friend Membership
- Teachers Membership
- Joint Teachers Membership
- Student Membership
Memberships are for the period of the calendar year ie 1 – January to 31 – December.
While membership of the Institute is mandatory for anyone teaching the Borovansky syllabus, we also have a Friend Membership for those people or organisations that are wishing to support the goals of the Institute. 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 Friend Membership, please submit our online form here.
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 syllabus. 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. In order to be a Teacher with the AICD, you need to be accredited. Details can be found 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. In order to be a Teacher with the AICD, you need to be accredited. Details can be found here
Student membership is automatically bestowed upon any student sitting Borovansky Syllabus exams. It does not need to be applied for separately.
To renew your membership of the Institute please complete the:
- Syllabus books and DVD’s,
- Music CDs and
- other teachers materials
