We are pleased to advise that we have our 9 week ‘Dance Fever’ dance program that commenced on the 1st of February and will conclude on the Monday the 29th of March (Week 10).
Years 3-6 will participate in a 40 minute dance lesson and Kindergarten to Year 2 will participate in a 30 minute lesson, run by two Dance instructors, each Monday. All students will need to wear their sport uniform.
The “Dance Program” is curriculum based, to teach children a variety of dances and dance styles including dance used by cultural groups. Children will work individually, with a partner, and groups, providing a platform to develop students’ interpersonal skills, social skills, peer respect and etiquette. Students will explore the elements of Dance and practise fundamental movement skills. Also covered will be improvisation, where students will be able to create movements or dance sequences using different body parts and in response to various stimuli, concepts or ideas.
This program has been designed to fulfil the Dance Outcomes in the Creative Arts K–6 Syllabus but certainly has a strong cross curricular relationship to the outcomes in the Personal Development, Health and Physical Education Syllabus.
