Dance

Year 9 and 10

Dance is offered to our junior students.  In Year 9, Dance is compulsory and in Year 10, Dance is an optional subject.

Students should have a passion for Dance and the confidence to perform in front of others.  Students will be required to actively take part in the annual Stage Challenge performance.

This course is a combination of both theory and practical work so students must be prepared to research and create written responses to their own and others work as well as participate in the practical tasks.

• Students will gain a wide range of skills and knowledge throughout this course with a particular emphasis on dance elements and choreographic devices.
• Students will study and interpret a range of dance genres and show their understanding of these through performance.
• Dance requires a great level of co-operation and group work so students who select this course will actively participate in partnering roles.
• Students will communicate ideas and themes through movement and develop self-confidence through public performances.
