We are proud to day that we are one of the ONLY dance programs in WA that directly links to the Australian and WA curriculum for the Performing Arts learning area, focussing specifically on the Making and Responding substrands:
The Arts: Dance Curriculum
|“Making in each Arts subject engages students’ cognition, imagination, senses and emotions in conceptual and practical ways and involves thinking kinaesthetically, critically and creatively. Students develop knowledge and skills to plan, produce, present, design and perform in each arts subject independently and collaboratively. Students work from an idea, an intention, particular resources, an imaginative impulse, or an external stimulus.” SCSA – The Arts – Dance.|
The Make A Move Performance Program allows students to use higher order thinking skills to improvise, imagine and think kinaesthetically to create their own group dances.
|“Responding in each Arts subject involves students reflecting, analysing, interpreting and evaluating in the Arts. Students learn to appreciate and investigate the Arts through contextual study. Learning through making is interrelated with, and dependent upon, responding. Students learn by reflecting on their making and responding to the making of others.” SCSA – The Arts – Dance.|
The Make A Move Performance Program gives students the opportunity to critically reflect on their making and look at how their pieces and others pieces fit in with the theme of the show.
