Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to analyse dance movements and to apply the concepts and terminology of music to dance performances.

Dancers, choreographers and dance teachers apply the skills and knowledge outlined in this unit. They could be exploring the relationship between music and dance in the context of dance teaching, improving their own dance technique, devising dance sequences, or reviewing dance performances.

Work is usually undertaken under some supervision, though autonomy and judgement can be expected given the nature of the process of reflecting and analysing performances.

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