Dance and Creative Movement

Dance education gives students the freedom and permission to question and explore life through movement. Students will demonstrate their abilities and understanding of dance through:

  • Creating, performing and producing dance.
  • Critical response, aesthetic response, meaning and interpretation in dance.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of cultural and historical contexts in dance.
  • Incorporate the four elements of dance: Space, Time, Effort and Force.
  • Demonstrate proficient technical competency in at least one genre of dance: Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Tap, Ballroom, Social, and World Cultural dance.
