Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to analyse dance movements and to use the terminology of dance analysis as a tool in refining dance technique and performance.

This unit applies to dancers with basic skills in any dance style who are pursuing a career in dance. At this level, dance analysis skills are mainly used as a way of discussing, evaluating and refining individual and group dance techniques and performances. Work is normally supervised, though some autonomy and judgement can be expected in the process of reaching conclusions about dance performances being analysed.

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