Introduction to the study of Dance as a Performing Art: technique, performance, composition and appreciation as an audience.

If you have ever wanted to learn how to dance, this is your opportunity! By the end of year 7, students will have the chance to learn various styles of dance including Hip Hop, Contemporary and Cultural Dance. Through practical workshops and theoretical lessons students will:

  • Apply the “Elements of Dance” and choreographic devices to create their own compositions in groups
  • Evaluate how different cultures from around the world and throughout time communicate and express themselves through Dance
  • Analyse Dance company performances to identify how technical and production elements create aesthetic appeal
  • Perform their own choreographed sequences and learn the technical and expressive skills appropriate to various dance styles
