Year 9 Dance
In Year 9 students begin to examine different dance styles and develop their performance skills. Performing is a large part of this course and pupils will have opportunities to perform at movement evening and other school events. The aim is to give the students an insight and prepare them fully in readiness for the BTEC course in Year 10 should they choose to do it.
Dance in Year 9 allows students to explore different dance styles. They will explore a range of popular, modern and/or classical dance styles. Within this unit of work, students will also further develop their performance skills including accuracy, focus, extension and timing. Assessment will focus on the demonstration of accurate stylistic features as well as other key performance skills.
