Extended Studies

Dance

Dance is an activity that everyone can enjoy. Over the Four weeks students will explore ways in which they can express themselves through music. Dance activities include making up dances, breaking dances up, putting moves together and working in groups. At the end of the sessions, students will be able to analyse their movements though information technology and compare their movement to those of professional dancers.


Types of dances that might be studies include Indian dancing, the Haka, Sports inspired movements and Ballroom.

Students will have the opportunity to explore a range of dance concepts, including:

• Canon

• Unison

• Levels

• Directions

• Speed

• Texture

• ETC – (Extension, tension and control).

• Tertiary form

• Analysis of movement.


These experiences should allow students to reflect in their ideas and develop them in a creative and flowing movement.
