i2 Art Courses help to integrate personalised language learning with dance. Courses provide an internationalized education and a platform for better communication and demonstration, as well as encouraging students to express themselves creatively.
Conducted in an authentic English-speaking environment, i2 dance courses help students to develop not only dance skills, physical movement and control but also to build expressiveness and confidence.
Students are typically aged 3- 12, with classes grouped according to ability.
All instruction is in English.
i² International Institute of Education opened its first formal campus in 2006 with the hope of offering students and teachers alike a unique environment for the pursuit of academic success.
Since its founding, i² has expanded to 21 campuses throughout Chengdu and 35 campuses outside of Chengdu, with more than 300 foreign teachers. i² provides quality education for thousands of students, and the i2 family grows larger every day.
Using a small class format – a maximum student number of 4, and a vast majority of classes having only 1 or 2 students – i² tailor-makes each course to their desired specifications. Teachers are free to add their own personal flavour to their courses to ensure each class is interesting, exciting and educational for the students.
