Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to analyse and integrate the rhythm of music into dance and movement routines.

The unit applies to those who are dancers and other performers who would usually be performing as members of an ensemble, though some solo work could be expected. It also applies to individuals involved in fitness and wellbeing activities that use 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.
