Each of the subjects within your outline seem quite good. I suggest an initial overview, so the students don't feel overwhelmed...and importantly, show how this knowledge does and can relate directly to their classroom technique/classes and how it may be applied to performance.
When I was a ballet student in college, my classmates couldn't always understand why they were in music theory ("Music for Dance") and were fairly upfront about their displeasure, so I think you need to be clear about its relevance and importance to their work.
That said, help and coach them to be more musical. I've been on audition tours, and I cannot tell you how often I see very nicely trained ballet students who are not also able to be equally musical. Often they are not on the beat -- typically behind -- and have trouble placing the "center" of their poses/shapes on the center of a downbeat; usually not anticipating enough.
They are dancing to the music but not necessarily with it.
Many teachers that I've recently interviewed for my book, "On Technique," http://www.upf.com
have all said that many (and in a couple of cases, all) technical problems can be fixed by fixing the musical ones.
Good luck with your program. It's very important and I applaud your efforts. Thank you!
