This class covers basic dance technique (ballet, modern and jazz dance), dance theory and history. In addition, students are exposed to a range of dance performance and choreographic structures, which are ultimately applied to the Choreography Project, where students create their own dances individually or in small groups. Students perform at two recitals throughout the year: Winter Recital (students demonstrate knowledge of dance technique and performance) and Spring Recital (students create and perform their own dances). The class involves specific dance technique and requires students to demonstrate knowledge of dance history and dance critique.
