Dance is a human activity of ancient tradition, and a fundamental and evolving form of expression. Experiences in Dance allow students to develop as increasingly collaborative or independent learners.
Dance is offered as an elective subject from Years 9 to 12, and all students in Year 8 complete a semester of Dance. When studied in Years 11 and 12, Dance is a subject which is used in the calculation of OPs.
Across the different year levels Dance exposes students to a variety of dance genres, such as Ballet, Hip Hop, Funk, Contemporary, Jazz, Tap and many more. Students also develop an awareness of dance in different contexts and for various functions, including for artistic, ritual and social purposes.
The study of Dance is enriched by experiences in Choreography, Performance and Appreciation. Some of the skills refined are self-confidence as a performer, use of improvisation as a tool for working in Dance, and the extension and consolidation of physical and technical capabilities. Written skills used in the deconstruction of danceworks require skills in, research and analysis as well as learning to communicate coherently and insightfully about Dance.
