Students from Kindy to Year 6 take part in Dance lessons, guided by a Dance Specialist Teacher, and have the opportunity to experience many forms – from contemporary, jazz to hip-hop.
As well as the benefits of physical movement in a non-competitive alternative to traditional sports, dance can help boost confidence, nurture a sense of appreciation and admiration for the arts, provides a creative outlet for ideas and feelings and can help overcome the fear of speaking, moving, or leading an audience.
This program is delivered in a safe and fun environment and allows the students to explore elements of BEST (Body, Energy, Space and Time), locomotor and non-locomotor movement, body control, musicality and timing, reflecting on performances, improvisation and replicating repertoire.
At the end of the Dance unit, students perform a “Dance Showcase.” Parents, families and friends become an audience for students showcasing what they have learnt during the unit.
With the students dressed in costume and performing in a Dance Concert setting, the Dance Showcase is a fun and popular event for the school!
Kindy families have an opportunity to be involved in a “Dance with me!” class alongside their children in a Kindy Dance class.
