Level 1 Dance

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs L. Chuck

What will I learn and how will I learn?
Level 1 Dance students will compose dance sequences for given briefs and performances, demonstrate ensemble skills in dance, demonstrate understanding of the elements of dance, and also their understanding of a dance performance.  Students will also learn by dance practice, plus it is expected they will put in one to two hours of theory homework per week.  Students will require a refill and folder (or clear file), and blue or black pen for class work. Highlighters are highly recommended. To have a realistic chance of passing the course and gaining entry into the next level, students MUST attend 95% of lessons. Students must perform in the Performing Arts Evening.

Conditions of Assessment
Assessment is by Achievement Standards - one externally assessed and four internally assessed. All work for assessment must be submitted to the teacher by the due date. Any work not submitted by the deadline will receive a "Not Achieved" grade.  If a student is sick on the day their work is due, they must get a Doctor's Certificate. (Refer Student Handbook for full assessment details).  APA referencing must be used if relevant to the task. All students are expected to follow the policy "authenticity" outlined in the Kaitaia College Student Handbook.  Failure to comply will result in a "Not Achieved" grade for the affected assessment/s.

Derived Grade Examinations
School internal examination results are used in the event that a student may have to apply for a derived grade for externally assessed standards.

NOTE: Course is subject to change with the review of standards at the end of each year.
