Dance

​​

At the College we offer Dance to Years 9 & 10 as an elective to provide exposure to a variety of dance styles and insight into the performing arts industry.

​ 

       In Dance, students:

  • build on their awareness of the body and how it is used in particular dance styles
  • understand that safe dance practices underlie all experiences in the study of dance
  • perform within their own body capabilities and work safely in groups
  • increase their confidence, accuracy, clarity of movement and projection
  • draw on dances from a range of cultures, times and locations as they experience dance
  • explore the dance and influences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and those of the Asia region
  • reflect on the development of traditional and contemporary styles of dance and how choreographers can be identified through the style of their choreography
