Prerequisite: Dance or teacher recommendation
Advanced Dance class gives students with dance experience (ASD or any other dance company) the opportunity to develop an advanced level of dance technique and refine their skills as both choreographer and performer. Students apply their creative and technical knowledge and skills through a variety of production and performance opportunities. Using expanded aesthetic criteria students analyze, synthesize, and evaluate their own choreography as well as works of others. Students learn to assess personal health and fitness, develop and achieve personal dance goals, and integrate knowledge and skills with a variety of other content areas. Students will maintain a portfolio, which contains written and/or visual examples of their work. This course can be repeated for credit.
