Dance 1 is a yearlong course devoted to the study of dance as a means to understand self and others, to communicate in dramatic form, and to gain an understanding of historical and artistic diversity through dance. Dance genres may include contemporary, world dance, hip hop, jazz, and social dance. Students will perform dances in different mediums. Students will also explore the choreographic process and improvisational movement. Student choreography participation will be encouraged and opportunities to perform in versatile community performances will be offered. Attendance for all community and school concert performances is mandatory.
