In Term 1 and 2 we work on dance and movement sequences, elements of dance, creativity and technique, learning material from the New Zealand Association of Modern Dance. Ballet, Jazz and Contemporary NZAMD Exam opportunities will be available for students in late August. We offer both examination and medal test assessments through the NZAMD.
We will then start putting pieces of work together for a performance held in term 4. This will be a celebration of dance and combination of work from all dancers in Culverden, Amberley, Rangiora, Balcairn and Kaiapoi. All students will have the opportunity to perform on stage, in costume and family and friends will be invited to share and celebrate in our dance success this year. Performance is a fabulous way to foster skills in self discipline, focus, team work, grow self esteem and it also creates a wonderful sense of achievement, not only individually but for the whole team. I look forward to our next public performance later this year.
We have a competition team which is open to students who are excelling in class, to further challenge and foster their performance aspect of dance. Competitions involve learning solo dances to then perform on stage at competitions which run locally as well as around the South Island.
