Year 13 Dance (13DAN)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs G. Thomas

NCEA Level Three Dance continues to place emphasis on choreography and performance skills and technique. Students are able to extend their knowledge and share their technical skills by producing a choreographic work for a performance, and gain experience in the use of theatre technologies. Level 3 will also further develop students collaboration and time management skills, along with their written and evaluation skills. Public performances will feature throughout the year and consequently demand a high level of personal commitment from the students. Rehearsals and shows may be required outside normal school hours.  

A selection of the following Achievement Standards will be assessed:
