The study of dance is an art form and you will be encouraged to develop your previous experience and knowledge from KS3. As performers you will develop confidence and self-esteem, self and body awareness as well as sensitivity to others and team working skills. Effective performance requires physical effort and the determination to succeed and improve. As choreographers, you will employ the skills of problem solving and creativity. You will need good communication skills when directing others. You will study a range of professional dances and acquire the ability to analyse and make informed decisions about the effectiveness of each one.
You will work as a performer and choreographer throughout the course developing a range of practical dance skills. You will learn to evaluate and assess the effectiveness of your own work/skills and those of others including professionals.
