L2 Dance

DAN21
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss J. Cram

This course gives ākonga the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of dance and learn new styles,techniques and composition skills. Three standards are assessed internally, these standards allow ākonga to choreograph their own dances in groups, perform whole class dances, and perform a wide range of styles and movements. Presentation of work to an invited audience is part of this course and ākonga will be required to take part in a performance evening in Term 3 to showcase their Dances. There is an Externally assessed standard which allows ākonga to interpret a dance performance (this provides literacy credits). Level 2 Dance is a creative space which allows ākonga to build their understanding of all things dance and have a go at creating their own choreography. This course is open to new ākonga.
