Introduction

Dance communicates ideas through movement and is an expressive art form. Students need to learn how to use their body in a safe and healthy way, whilst developing a wide-ranging movement vocabulary. This unit introduces some key skills and suggestions for how to develop these skills with students.

The use of different dance techniques can be an effective way of building vocabulary and developing different kinds of skills and abilities. Technical dance skills can form the foundation on which to develop and enhance each individual's performance.

As dance teachers, we may have a range of skills, but it isn't always possible to possess expertise in every type of dance style and technique.
