Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to integrate rhythm into dance or movement routines. The unit applies to dancers and other performers who would usually be performing as members of an ensemble, though some solo work could be expected. The unit applies equally well to people involved in fitness and wellbeing activities that integrate a range of body movement techniques with music.

At this level work is normally supervised, though some autonomy and judgement can be expected within established parameters.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
