Dance I is divided into three main areas of study: technique, dance history, and performance. The course covers a variety of techniques at the beginning level, including modern, jazz, hip-hop, and ballet. Students will also learn choreographic tools to create movement studies and solos. Two performances are required. Students must provide dance wear attire and dance shoes. Placement for technique level is through audition. *See page 5 regarding HPE Deferment for Rising 9th grade students.
