Develop expertise in contemporary dance technique
Issue Date: May 2020
This unit applies to those who are consolidating their career in contexts where contemporary dance skills are required. They could be developing technique to prepare for performances in commercial or competition settings where they would usually be performing as members of an ensemble, though some solo work could be expected.
While supervision and guidance are provided in practice sessions and rehearsals, dancers are expected to display a high level of motivation and sense of responsibility for themselves and others when it comes to applying dance technique in a live performance context.
This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to add range and depth to contemporary dance technique. At this level, dancers are constantly refining their technique and expression to produce performances that convey the mood and style of music through complex dance movements.
