What will I learn?

The Level 2 Dance course will build on your performance, choreography, creativity and knowledge that             you developed in Level 1. You will experience a variety of dance genres, such as hip hop, jazz,                         Bollywood, contemporary, safe partnering practices and choreographic tasking, with a greater emphasis           on technique. You will explore the choreographic processes of professional choreographers, and apply             this knowledge to your own developing process. You will work with a wider range of music styles,                     rhythms and learning processes. There will be opportunities for you to view professional dance works               during the year and to have guest tutors in class.

Dance is an approved subject for University Entrance, and an academic Scholarship subject at Level 3.
