Stage 5 Dance involves students exploring the concepts of performance, composition and appreciation.
In this elective, students will learn a variety of dance style techniques, including Jazz, Ballet, Contemporary and Hip Hop. Students will perform in, and choreograph their own dances and study and interpret a variety of dance works.
Students in this elective will be involved in creating a dance work for the Canberra Youth Dance Festival, and will be eligible to audition for the School's Spectacular.
Advantages of Studying Dance
Dance students develop physical skill as well as aesthetic, artistic and cultural understanding. Students practice imaginative thinking and the sharing of ideas, feelings, values and attitudes while physically and intellectually exploring the communication of ideas through movement. The development of student creativity, imagination and individuality is emphasised equally with the knowledge of dance.
