Subject Overview:

Four classes a week in both Ballet and Contemporary Dance, and a ninth elective class in either Ballet or Contemporary Dance. Classes in ballet will facilitate mastery of exercises at the barre, in the centre, steps of turning and allegro. In Contemporary Dance classes students consolidate their understanding of the principles of contemporary dance and refine their movement skills as sequences develop in rhythmic and coordinative complexity. Classes in both areas will concentrate on efficient alignment, cardiovascular endurance, coordination, expression and musicality.


Assessment in practical class work is comprehensive and includes assessment for progress, random assessment, self assessment and formal assessment class.
