In Dance 3, the emphasis switches to application of skills to performance. Here the emphasis is on opportunities for students to put into practice the craft and methodologies learned in the first two years to create an autonomous personal process that serves the intention of the particular work and is harmonious with the requirements of other creatives such as directors, music directors, choreographers, designers and technicians. Students will be expected to be able to create and fulfil a sustained, psychologically, physically and emotionally cohesive character journey across a whole role, whether dancing, singing or acting and make a positive contribution to ensemble. Key to this will be the ability to work from technical, interpretative and intuitive imperatives and the ability to adapt their process to the divergent requirements of style and genre. Underpinning all rehearsal and performance work will be an understanding of safe dance practice. Ultimately, students will emerge from Year 3 with a clear understanding of their own potential as a performer and will be able to self-diagnose areas requiring further extension and skills maintenance.
Upon completion of Dance Studies 3 students should be able to:
.Continuous: preparation and participation in rehearsal and individual lessons, demonstrating continuous application and progress towards stated outcomes during first and second semester (25%)
Formal: based on two performances, one in semester 1 and one in semester 2, demonstrating technical and artistic progress of an appropriate standard (75%)
