Welcome to Beginning Dance!
This class introduces students to procedures, etiquette and vocabulary required for safe and effective participation in dance. Students are introduced to a variety of dance styles such as ballet, modern, jazz, hip-hop and various forms of dance from a multitude of countries. Students conduct creative movement studies using choreographic elements such as relationships, levels, speed, direction, and pathways in individual, partner and group activities. We will also be studying dance theory, and addressing other skills that make a dancer, like writing, and critical thinking. At the end of this course, Ms. Noble will expect you to be able to write, think, and perform like a dancer.
