Dance at Plume is taught within a performing arts context and encourages students to be physically active and creative within lessons. Students are encouraged to develop their interpersonal skills; verbal and non-verbal communication; problem solving skills as well as their practical dance ability. Students work on three main areas in Dance:
- Performance: their physical and expressive skills
- Choreography: their ability to create movement in response to a specific theme, issue, topic or style
- Appreciation: their ability to discuss, write and talk about Dance
Dance at Mill Road Campus is taught in learning groups with students having one lesson a week. Students are encouraged to develop their dance skills by getting involved in at least one of the extra-curricular sessions offered.
