13DAN

Level 3 Dance

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms S. Allpress

LEARNING ACTIVITIES: Students will extend their ability to choreograph and perform original dance works. They will work both individually and collaboratively on solo, duet and group dances.  

Attending at least one live professional dance performance will support appreciation of dance works. A specific dance work will be analysed and examined in the external exam. 

There will be opportunity for students to gain extra dance credits through involvement as dancers and or choreographers in the school production and the Lynfield Cultural Festival. Where possible and appropriate, learning from different achievement standards will be integrated into a single learning context.

 Development of physical skill and performance ability is relevant to situations that require presentation skills. Self- discipline, focus, creativity, confidence, communication and good group and collaborative skills are personal attributes highly valued by employers and tertiary study providers.




Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Admission costs associated with attending at least one professional live dance performance.

Recommended Prior Learning

Previous experience and learning from 12DAN NCEA Level 2 is recommended.  Alternatively,  training in a specific dance style in a studio context may be considered. Please consult the HOD of Dance and Drama if you are unsure about your level of prior learning.

Experience dancing in the school production or cultural dance will be an advantage. Prior training in any dance genre will be an added advantage. An excellent track record of attendance is essential due to the collaborative nature of much of the work undertaken. If unsure of your experience level, please see HOD Drama and Dance.
