Are you in Year 10, 11 or 12 and love to DANCE? Enrol now for VCE Dance at Reflections Academy of Dance for 2018.
Every student will be provided with the opportunity to explore the potential of movement as a medium of creative expression through practical and theoretical approaches. Available to any students wishing to study dance as a VCE subject.
The VCE Dance course at Reflections Academy of Dance is a fully accredited VCE subject recognised by the Victorian Curriculum Assessment Authority (VCAA). RAD is one of only a few dance schools in the South-Eastern suburb that offer VCE through a private provider.
As Dance is a specialist elective, that many schools cannot offer, RAD believes that we have made this accessible to local students at an affordable price. RAD currently have students from several local secondary schools undertaking the Vce course through our partnership. Past schools include:
– Alkira SC
– Casey Grammar College
– Kambrya SC
– Cranbourne East SC
– Patterson River SC
– St. Peter’s Christian College
– Berwick College
– Hallam Senior College
– St. Francis Xavier College
– Elisabeth Murdoch College
– Narre Warren P-12
– Frankston High
– St Margaret’s College
VCE Dance develops students’ physical skills, personal movement vocabulary, and application of choreographic and analytical principles. Students create and perform their own dance works as well as studying the dance works of others through performance and analysis.
In each unit, students are required to undertake systematic dance training to build physical skills and develop their ability to safely execute a diverse range of expressive body actions.
Students perform choreographed or learnt solo and group dance works using different dance-making processes.
This study enables students to:
- develop safe dance practice and physical skills to enable a secure, controlled, expressive movement vocabulary to emerge
- develop a safe and anatomically aware use of the body
- develop skills associated with a variety of approaches to dance-making and performance
- respond creatively and kinaesthetically to ideas, emotions, observations and explorations of movement to communicate an expressive intention
- observe, experience and write about dance in an analytical, a critical and a reflective manner
- understand influences on their own dance works and those created by other choreographers
The study is made up of four units. Each unit deals with specific content contained in areas of study and is designed to enable students to achieve a set of outcomes for that unit. Each outcome is described in terms of key knowledge and key skills.
There are no prerequisites for entry to Units 1, 2 and 3. Students must undertake Unit 3 prior to undertaking Unit 4. Units 1 to 4 are designed to a standard equivalent to the final two years of secondary education. All VCE studies are benchmarked against comparable national and international curriculum.
It is recommended that students have three to four years dance and/or movement experience prior to the commencement of VCE Dance. This experience might focus on a specific dance style or could involve development of a personal movement vocabulary.
