In this elective students will focus on technique, safe dance skill, dance making skills, performance and analysis. Students will learn a class dance which they will perform and be assessment on. Students will be learn about formal structures, body actions, physical skills and choreographic devices used to create a dance. Students will use this knowledge (along with structured improvisations) to choreograph their own small group, duo or solo dance. They will also use this knowledge to be introduced to analysis of professional dance works, a skill required for VCE Dance.
Assessments for this elective include; Warm up presentation, class dance performance, own dance choreography and performance and analysis of selected dance works. Students may then choose to continue to study VCE Dance.
