Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms A. Flaherty

Students will explore a variety of dance disciplines such as:
• Modern and stylised jazz
• Urban and street dance
• Body percussion  
• Musical theatre and Commercial dance
• Contemporary dance
• Production technologies
• Devising techniques

This is a heavily performance based course with a major focus on devising and interpretation. At Level 3 students enter this course with a solid performance foundation from prior training and completion of the Level 1 and 2 Dance course. Students will learn, use, develop and refine skills in composition. Through cooperative learning and active participation, students will up-skill in a range of dance styles and refine their practical technique. Year 13 students are expected to work as a dance company; creating work in a professional capacity.

The course is divided into three components:
• Dance performance - learning an array of rhythmical patterns and movement combinations
• Dance choreography - devising in order to communicate an intention
• Dance technique - mastery of physical technical skills
