DANCE -- These classes are structured as year-long college preparatory introductory dance courses and satisfy either the VAPA or physical education course requirements. They are a balance of both a studio and academic approach to the study of movement. The syllabus is structured to follow the guidelines established by the California State Standards for the visual and performing arts, as well as those for physical education. These courses will cover many genres of dance, but will stress the disciplines of modern and jazz dance. Students will receive instruction on technique as well and be prepared for introductory work in choreography and improvisation. The physical work in class will be enhanced by our course reader and occasional viewings of digital media. Students are required to participate in all class exercises as well as completing all written assignments and projects. Both written and physical exams will be given throughout the year. Students must also participate in one mandatory performance outside of school instructional hours per semester. One of these performances is prior to winter break and the other takes place in the Spring Semester.
