Year 8 Dance

Course Description

Year 8 Dance is an introduction to the performance and choreography of dance as a school based subject. Level 3 and 4 of the NZ Dance Curriculum is the focus for the work completed at this year level.

Over the term the learners will explore and describe dances from a variety of cultures and work collaboratively with others. They will select and combine dance elements in their preparation of dance sequences using a variety of stimuli. Learners will then share dance movement in pairs and groups. Learners will be given a grade for both their performance and choreography work over the term.
