Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms C. Nicklin

If you love to dance and be creative– this is your subject! Throughout the course there is a focus on choreography and performance. We will learn about the development of Jazz Dance, from its origins in the African Slave trade to the way we see it now, as well as explore a choreographic process inspired by the role of the 28th Māori Battalion in New Zealand’s history. Year 9 Dance is a highly practical subject that will have you to developing your creativity, confidence and collaborative skills.
