Develop dance partnering techniques
Issue Date: May 2020
The skills and knowledge outlined in this unit apply to dancers in any style or genre. Knowing how to dance with a partner is essential in all performance contexts - from social to community to professional.
At this level partnering techniques would be simple in nature and not include movements such as overhead lifts which require a high level of fitness and advanced technique.
Work is usually undertaken under supervision, though some autonomy and judgement can be expected given the nature of dance performance.
This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to apply basic techniques for dancing with a partner in any dance style.
