Dance is recognised as a significant component of Australian performing arts. Dance is the universal language of movement that conveys meaning and evokes emotions in audiences from all social and cultural communities. Dance is primarily a non-verbal mode of communication that can express life experiences, observations and reflections.
Dance Choreography and Performance is a theoretical and practical course that challenges the intellect, body and emotions. The study of dance at this level contributes to the learners’ total development including their artistic, aesthetic and cultural education. Through the study and practise of dance in this course learners engage in reflective practice, create their own expressive movement and develop an appreciation of how other dance artists represent thoughts and intentions.
This course is designed to enhance the learner’s appreciation of dance as an arts form, and the inter-relationship of performance, composition and appreciation. This course will prepare learners pursuing further education options, training and careers in dance and performing arts.
