Students in this class will refine their skills and dance technique. Students will continue to develop dance skills and be introduced to performance of more abstract dance forms, staging, and rhythms. Intermediate dance students will learn the necessary tools in order to choreograph for possible performances. Students will apply elements of composition in order to create and audition pieces for the dance concert at the end of each semester. Participation in dance concerts will require rehearsals outside the normal school hours. Dancers will explore historical, cultural, and critical analysis of live dance performances through various forms.
Prerequisite: Teacher approval with a grade of "B" or better in Beginning Dance and/or audition.
