Dance Overview

Students receive different stimuli to create and perform dances in different styles. Within dance, students develop skills as a performer and choreographer whilst learning how to appreciate there own work and that of others.

Students learn about the street dance style through professional dance works and current music videos from the commercial sector. Students learn a set routine in the style to develop whole body and isolated body skills whilst extending their musical and rhythmic skills in performance.  Creatively, the students learn how to manipulate and stage the routine in an ensemble to create interest using a range of compositional devices. The students then create and stage their own section devising their own movement whilst focusing on the development of spatial relationships and musicality. Group rehearsal and peer feedback sessions are used to refine final pieces of work.
