influential people in the field of dance and arts management." For
additional internship information, to view a video clip of the

enriched by regular attendance at performances, dance classes, staff-led
workshops, and Festival events-all provided to interns free of charge.
A monetary stipend and free room and board are also provided.
Internships provide key career contacts, knowledge of current issues
related to the field, invaluable first-hand experience in arts
administration or technical theater production, and networking with the

Katie Friis, a former Education Intern, points out, "because of this
internship, I am applying for jobs that I never would have felt
qualified for three months ago. The experience has given me skills and

organizations in the U.S., Europe, and Asia such as the Baryshnikov Arts
Center, Danish Dance Theater, Kennedy Center, Mark Morris Dance Group,

cultural legacy. In 2003, Jacob's Pillow was declared a National

For immediate release - Wednesday 4 February 2009

Adelaide Festival Centre's centrED program in association with the

SACE Board of South Australia presents

2009 SACE Dance and Drama days


Over 800 South Australian Year 12 Dance and Drama students and their teachers will
participate in the annual SACE Dance and Drama Days, held at the Festival Theatre on
16 and 17 February.

Both days are presented by the Adelaide Festival Centre's Education Program, centrED
(Department Of Education and Children's Services) in collaboration with the SACE
Board of South Australia (formerly the Senior Secondary Assessment Board of South

SACE Dance Day (16 Feb) has been presented every year since 1991. Students will hear
presentations from some of South Australia's best dance teachers and performers, and
participate in a number of workshops including Contemporary and Jazz Techniques,
Capoeira, Acrobatics, Partnering Skills and Fitness for the Dancer.

SACE Drama Day (17 Feb) was introduced in 2005 and gives an opportunity for students
to discover both the creative and practical aspects of Drama as a subject. It will
feature a wonderful showcase of the best 2007 student works for individual study
presentations and a group production excerpt from "Accidental Death of an Anarchist"
by students from Glenunga International High School.

Robyn Goldsworthy, Adelaide Festival Centre Education Officer said that it was
important for students to study creative subjects such as Dance and Drama as well as
other subjects traditionally considered more "academic".

"Regardless of whether they want to pursue a career in these areas, studying the
Arts equips students with knowledge and social and personal skills that enable
learning throughout life. The subjects of Drama and Drama Studies provide
opportunities to think creatively and flexibly, generate ideas, work as part of a
team and solve problems from different perspectives." Ms. Goldsworthy said.

SACE Dance and Drama Days are just two of the many events supported by centrED
throughout the year, with upcoming events in 2009 including an after-show Q&A
session with New York dance company Complexions Contemporary Ballet on 11 March; and
a special schools-only performance of ex-Adelaide choreographer Tanja Liedtke's
final work, construct, on 24 July.

centrED also provides a unique year long professional learning package for teachers,
featuring four works from the Adelaide Festival Centre's 2009 program and
opportunities to liaise with members of the creative teams in after show forums.
There is a total of 10 hours of professional development and learning outcomes, with
Certificates of Participation for all teachers involved.

Teachers interested in attending SACE Dance and/or Drama Days or in receiving
further information on any of centrED's programs are welcome to contact Robyn
Goldsworthy on (08) 8216 8861 or
