Dance & Drama

Dance

 
 
 

Students from Prep to Year 5 participate in a weekly Dance class over two terms.  The Australian Curriculum breaks the Dance curriculum into two strands;  

Making:  involves improvising, choreographing, comparing and contrasting, refining, interpreting, practicing, rehearsing and performing.
 
Responding: involves viewing, describing, reflecting on, analysing, appreciating and evaluating their own and others’ dance works.
 
In both strands, students learn the processes of choreography, performance and appreciation.  Students also learn to use safe dance practices.    
 
Dance units will be integrated with curriculum taught inside the classroom to allow students to gain a deeper and richer learning experience.  Students are provided a safe, supportive and inclusive space where they can explore and further enhance creative and critical thinking skills.
 

Drama

 
Students from Prep to Year 5 participate in a weekly Drama class over two terms.  The Australian Curriculum breaks the Drama curriculum into two strands;
 
  • Making: involves improvising, playing, devising, acting, comparing and contrasting, refining, interpreting, practicing, rehearsing, presenting and performing.  Students use voice, movement, language and ideas to explore characters, roles, relationships and situations.
  • Responding: involves listening to, enjoying, reflecting on, analysing, appreciating and evaluating their own and others’ drama works.

 

Students have to make, perform and respond to drama which enables students to express and communicate experiences through their creation and responses.

Drama units will be integrated with curriculum taught inside the classroom to allow students to gain a deeper and richer learning experience.  Students learn and develop skills in expression, communication, collaboration and confidence.  Students are provided a safe, supportive and inclusive space where they can explore and further enhance creative and critical thinking skills.
