  • understanding and using language and terminology specific to dance in the process of creating, staging, presenting, responding to, and appraising dance

  • presenting ideas in a variety of forms, including written and multimodal forms with appropriate acknowledgment of sources
  • critically analysing and evaluating their own work and the work of others.
