Course Description

Dance 301
This course covers dance choreography and production, performance and analysis with a focus on dance repertoire and performance. Students explore solo and group choreographic techniques, perform in a solo or group dance and learn a repertoire of contrasting dance styles. 

The external standard requires students to critically analyse a dance work of a professional company.

Participation in a live public performance is a compulsory aspect of this course.

Scholarship Dance is also an option in this course.

This course is UE approved.
