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