Students study the historical background and works of professional choreographers in one or more genres, and have the ability to apply, and respect each choreographer's movement design, artistic intent, and intellectual property. Students may demonstrate Narrative, Literal, Non-Literal and Abstract dance, advancing skills for group and self-assessment, analysis, and problem solving. Dancers assess their skills and techniques in the context of careers in theatrical, commercial and concert dance. Students may be required to participate in rehearsals and performances outside the school day to support, extend, and assess learning in the classroom. Students in this class may need to obtain (e.g., borrow, purchase) appropriate footwear and/or dance attire from an outside source.
Honors and Advanced Level Course Note: Academic rigor is more than simply assigning to students a greater quantity of work. Through the application, analysis, evaluation, and creation of complex ideas that are often abstract and multi-faceted, students are challenged to think and collaborate critically on the content they are learning.
