Level 1 Dance
The Level 1 dance course has a balanced focus on creativity, performance, and analysis. Learners will explore their own movement ideas, share them with others, and use choreographic devices and processes to develop and give form to their own dance sequences. They will prepare, rehearse and perform a range of dances and demonstrate understanding of the performance requirements of the genres and contexts. Learners will practically explore the elements of dance and record and reflect on what they discover. We will view dance works and analyse them using the dance elements and terms we have learnt throughout the year.
