Technique: Developing skills in contemporary and hip hop dance styles.
Composition: Students learn skills to create their own dance choreography pieces by exploring movement through a variety of tasks based on themes, ideas and choreographic devices.
Performance: Students have the opportunity to perform at various school and community events, in contemporary, jazz and/or hip hop, as well as ongoing presentations in class.
Appreciation: Students are given research tasks and projects in order to develop their knowledge of dance history and dance in today’s society.
