Subject consultation

Dance renewal

The SACE Board has a cycle of subject monitoring, review, and renewal to ensure that students have access to a relevant, contemporary, quality senior secondary education. As part of this cycle, in 2018 work began on the review and renewal of Stage 1 and Stage 2 Dance.

From this work, two subject outlines (contained within one document) have been drafted for:

  • Stage 1 Dance
  • Stage 2 Dance

It is proposed that these subjects replace the current Stage 1 Dance and Stage 2 Dance.


The renewed draft Stage 1 subject outlines are now available for consultation. These drafts are in one document, which can be downloaded. Feedback can be provided via the online feedback form.

The consultation drafts were available online from Thursday 28 March to Tuesday 30 April 2019
