Year 10 Electives
In the Dance course, which runs for both Semester 1 and 2, students will work on confidence, accuracy, clarity of movement, and projection. They refine their discussion of the elements of dance, choreographic processes and design concepts in their own dance and the dance of others. They will investigate dance and the influences of the social, cultural and historical contexts in which it exists.
There will be an emphasis on students’ choreography in addition to teacher/student collaborative choreography. Students will showcase their group pieces at Choreography Night, Performing Arts Night, Dance Festivals or Dance Eisteddfods.
The units are suitable for students wishing to continue Dance in Years 11 and 12 and those who simply wish to dance or try dance for the first time.
Set work and dance genres will be different in each course, enabling students, the opportunity of participating in both courses. Dance genres that may be studied in Year 10 include Jazz, Contemporary, Tap, Ballet, Lyrical, Jazz, Funk, Hip Hop and/or Cheerleading.
