Level 3 Dance
The Level 3 dance course has a balanced focus on performance, choreography, dance styles, and analysis. Learners will explore their own movement ideas, share them with others, and apply techniques and form to choreograph dances. They will learn movement vocabularies from different dance styles, times and cultures. In particular, investigating key dance companies and choreographers that have had significant influence on dance in Aotearoa/New Zealand.
Learners will practically explore a range of performance approaches and record and reflect on their work. This will conclude with a showcase of dance, where learners will select and apply rehearsal processes, performance skills and production technologies to enhance the communication and expression of
their dance works.
