Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to develop and refine movement skills required in a range of live performance contexts. At this level, performers are constantly refining their technique and expression to produce performances that convey the mood and style of music through movement routines.

This unit applies to performers who are consolidating their career where high level movement skills are required. They could be involved in dance, musical theatre and circus performances. 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, performers are expected to display a high level of motivation and responsibility for themselves and others during live performances.

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