Dance 11

Course Outline

Dance 11 is designed for all students, with our without previous formal dance training, and builds on student’s experiences in dance throughout the physical education curriculum, grades primary to nine. It emphasizes creative movement as a form of communication and self-expression, as a unique way of learning about oneself and others. Learning experiences in this course offer students opportunities to explore a range of dance styles with more focused work in a few genres; create and present dance sequences; respond critically to their own dance works and those of others; and make connections with dance in local and global contexts, both past and present. Students also have opportunities to examine the connections between dance and other arts disciplines. The course comprises four components: elements of movement, creation and composition, presentation and performance, and dance and society.
