Dance / Levels 3 and 4 / Respond and Interpret
Content description
Identify how the elements of dance and production elements are used to express ideas in dance they make, perform and view, including in dances from local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  1. discussing the planning, developing or refining of aspects of a dance they are making and how their dance has been influenced by dance they have viewed or performed
  2. using questions to interpret dance from different times, places and locations, for example, what clues in the dance tell students where it was made, by whom and why, or can the students dance their journey from school to home?
  3. comparing the expectations and requirements of performers and audience in different cultural settings, for example, viewing a dance performed at a Tanderrum and talking about the roles of the performers, other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people taking part in the ceremony and the general audience
  4. comparing dances in their local community to dances of other people, times and locations
  5. using dance terminology to write about and discuss their intentions as dance-makers
