What is this course about?

We will use both theoretical and practical aspects to explore and interpret different dance forms, investigating through movement, the dance elements of body awareness, space, time, energy and relationships, using personal experiences and imagination to express ideas. We will choreograph and share movement through both formal and informal presentation in both solo and group works.  We will get to participate in a variety of different dance related genres with the opportunity to experience lessons taught by leaders of those styles. Styles covered will include contemporary, theatre dance, ethnic and social. There is a requirement to produce your own solo choreography and trio dance piece that is expected to be imaginative and original. We will be viewing live performance throughout the course from a range of different genres and styles. You will undertake research in dance and will learn to speak the language of dance in preparation for a written academic exam at the end of the year which covers crictical analysis of a professional dance work.

What will I learn?

Students will:
Extend practical knowledge of dance in three main genres
Experience a range of ethnic and social dance forms
