Dance II (Period 5)
Dance II is a performance-based, intermediate-level course that serves as a dance student’s second year to be a member of a dance ensemble at the high school. Students will learn to improvise dance phrases using the concept of abstraction by incorporating choreographic processes by altering time, space, dynamics, and intensity in dance styles. Students will analyze and critique their own as well as others’ performance skills and production qualities in dance. Students identify similarities of form and expression in dance with other art mediums while applying dance-related skills.
