Content

This course will introduce the disciplines needed to explore choreography in two different styles of dance whilst developing the practical skills, knowledge and understanding relevant to dance technique and performance. Students will also research, analyse and appreciate varying dance styles and practitioners helping to put their learning into context.

The mandatory Unit Dance: Choreography allows candidates to develop choreographic skills which allow them to create movement, use stimuli and analyse a dance piece by an established choreographer. They will be introduced to choreographic devices and stimuli and will put these skills into practice through tutor-led tasks and workshops.

Students will also study two optional units from a range including: Alternative dance, Classical dance, Contemporary dance and Jazz.
