Students develop creative, technical, and physical understanding, and an appreciation of dance as an art form. Dance has its own specific language and processes that students learn in theory and practice through the study of technique, composition, choreography, performance, and critical analysis.
Dance offers opportunities for the development of students' creativity, self-discipline, self esteem, personal identity, and confidence. This is achieved through experiences that encourage collaboration and creative problem-solving, the acquisition of skills, knowledge, and understanding, and the development of aesthetic awareness.
