...and choreographic skills such as, motif and development, unison, canon, retrograde, instrumentation
Students will be assessed in a range of skills:
Assessment will be by live performance work, homework tasks and evaluation of own and others skills.
The aims of the course are to develop the individual's knowledge, understanding and skills of Dance, through performance, composition and appreciation of their own and other people's work, including that of professionals.
More teaching hours will be allocated to practical lessons than theory lessons in a fortnight.
Students will develop their dance skills both in and outside the studio environment with visiting Dance artists and professional workshops. As an integral part of the course, students will enjoy Dance by continuing to perform to live audiences throughout the year and attending theatre performances for regular inspiration.
The assessment process is divided into two components;
Students must complete both assessment components.
Dance is a growing area of the Arts and Media. This course will give you the essential skills to lead others with confidence.
Studying disciplines of Dance allows students the opportunity to explore and employ skills of problem solving and creativity whilst increasing levels of fitness and self-esteem.
This course will appeal to girls with a genuine interest in Dance. Students who currently take Dance as an option enjoy being in a vibrant, energetic and creative subject where they gain real independence in their work. They also take pleasure in experimenting with new choreographic ideas, performing and training in a range of styles and techniques.
