Course - Dance

At Covenant Christian School, Dance is offered in a manner that supports our Christian world view, with a biblical perspective underpinning all lessons. Students are encouraged to use their skills to serve their school and church communities, and also be equipped to continue on to Stage 6 Dance studies in Year 11 and 12.

Content

Students electing Dance at Covenant Christian School in Year 9 and 10 will engage in an integrated study of:

  • the practices of performance, composition and appreciation
  • the elements of dance (space, time and dynamics)
  • the context of dance as an art form.

Year 9 focus areas 

Dance in Year 9 includes the essential content and then progresses sequentially through the sections of additional content based on 100 hours of study.

Year 10 focus areas

In Year 10, the Dance course includes the essential content (100 hours) and additional content (100 hours) with students having the opportunity to apply dance technique to a variety of dance styles.

Students who have studied Dance in Year 9 and 10 (Stage 5) have a developing understanding of dance as an art form demonstrated in the making and performing of dances and the appreciation of their meaning. They have developed the appropriate dance technique (strength, flexibility, coordination, endurance and skill) required to perform choreographed combinations, sequences and dances of increasing complexity based on the elements of dance, with a basic understanding of safe dance practice. In their performance, they exhibit a developing projection, focus and confidence.
