Year 9 Dance

Course Description

Year 9 Dance builds on the performance and choreography skills of dance. Level 4 of the NZ Dance Curriculum is the focus for the work completed at this year level.

Over the semester the learners will learn how to combine and contrast the dance elements to express images, ideas and feelings in dance, using a variety of choreographic processes. They will prepare and present dance, with an awareness of the performance context. Alongside this the learners will explore and describe how dance is used for different purposes in a variety of cultures and contexts.
