Dance at Sylvania High promotes opportunities for performance within the school curriculum and as an extra curricular activity. Our aims are to encourage students to develop knowledge and understanding, skills and attitudes in performing, composing and valuing Dance. The main aim of the syllabus is for students to study Dance as an ‘Artform’.
Dance involves the development of physical skill as well as aesthetic and artistic understanding. The Dance curriculum aims to develop physical, cognitive, creative and performance skills, and knowledge in all students regardless of previous experience or level of skill. Students learn to develop ideas and to express them creatively as they compose and perform dances and analyse and interpret dance as works of art. They think imaginatively and share ideas, feelings, values and attitudes while physically and intellectually exploring the communication of ideas, themes and feelings through movement.
