NCEA Level 1 Dance

Course Description

Teacher in Charge:

In this course we will develop both choreography and performance skills. 

You will experience a wide variety of styles and genres, as well as learning to understand a dance genre in depth covering historic influences including its place in our current society. Alongside the physical skill set of performance and choreography, you will expand your collaboration skills, build confidence and create strong creative relationships with others. 

The course provides a solid knowledge and movement base if you are a ‘first-timer’ and will also extend you if you have had previous experience in dance. All movement works towards our public Dance Showcase at the end of the year.
