“Because being taught to be respectful, engaged and culturally open-minded is learned, making culturally rich curriculum programs is critical to supporting diversity in Australia” Tamayo.
As an early years educator and dance teacher for over thirty years, I know the importance of engaging cross-cultural curricula. When implementing cultural experiences there is always the question ” what will the children learn?” and “will they have fun?”. Understanding each child learns across the multiple intelligences, we believe our inclusive program has it covered.
Master instructor Marina Tamayo has worked in the professional entertainment theatre industry and at community level alongside hundreds of children, teachers over three decades of teaching. Marina has delivered Spanish studies in all states of Australia. She has taught in Ballet schools, TAFE, Universities, Montessori and Steiner environments, early child care centers in private and public sectors, private and public primary and high schools, private birthday parties, weddings, resorts, and children television. Also, Marina has worked in remote rural communities, urban and inner-city locations. Marina, not only catches the plane she drives her car, rides in boats and teaches on online!
The program is unique in Australia. The basis of the program is an authentic culturally rich folk dance and music immersion. Inviting the children to get active through movement, gesture, voice or observation is critical and therefore the program is friendly, accessible to all students and most of all fun! Marina is a professional Flamenco artist, trained classical pianist, Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood and Junior Primary. Tamayo is the daughter of a migrated Spanish family (Granada Spain) educated in Australia, and has made learning basic Spanish familiar, accessible, engaging, easy, fun, practical and informative. Marina is supported by an expert team consisting of leading Spanish artists, Folk dancers, Early Childcare Educators, and qualified primary teachers who often accompany or deliver her program.
In addition, Marina offers world-class, professional and community performances for your cultural experience. Inquire today!
