Intercultural understanding

In this subject students extend and apply their intercultural understanding capability by, for example:

  • communicating sensitively their understanding of, and responses to, dance knowledge that has been informed by different cultural ideas
  • exploring and analysing genres and influences in dance across time, location, and cultures
  • exploring how dance from different cultures influences their own creations
  • understanding the role of dance in social and cultural contexts.
