Throughout Dance, students will discover elements of bodily movement and expression, as well as having opportunities to create their own dance moves. Dance allows students to develop a number of skills including muscle memory, coordination, release creative energy and much more.

 

Students will learn about the various elements of music, including rhythm, pitch, beat, dynamics, tempo and much more. During Music, students will also explore a variety of instruments, singing, collaboration and creating their own musical pieces.

These platforms will incorporate the other areas of ‘The Arts’ being covered in Performing Arts, allowing students to showcase all they have learnt, demonstrating great pride and success.
