"The Community Builders Applied Arts Training Programme (CBAATP)
CBAATP (previously Community Builders Dance Training Prrogramme) develops dance artists/educators who are able to work across diverse contexts. The comprehensive training received in applied arts methodologies, facilitation training, dance performance, dance-making, dance in societal-context and arts administration prepares candidates for a career in the professional dance industry, while the community-focused Facilitator training and on-the-job training received within FATC’s rural Local Arts Education Programmes prepares them with specialized skills in developing and implementing dance programmes within rural communities. The programme therefore improves access to dance training within rural areas more broadly through the upskilling of young dance professionals interested in community-development through dance practice.
At the core of the programme is the delivery of Applied Arts Facilitation training as well as a 59 credit NQF level 4 CATHSSETA Accredited Skills programme in the performing arts"
