Performing / Fine Arts
Principal Approved Final
Students actively explore formal and folk dance from a variety of cultures and sub-cultures around the world over time. Students may use timelines to guide their study of art history, dance history, and technology, or they may investigate dance customs globally and in real time using technology and the community's cultural resources. Inquiry may include, but is not limited to, political and social influences, traditional and non-traditional attire, and the use of associated objects in various cultural dances. Public performances may serve as a culmination of specific instructional goals. Students may be required to attend and/or participate in rehearsals and performances outside the school day to support, extend, and assess learning in the classroom. Students in this class may need to obtain (e.g., borrow, purchase) appropriate footwear and/or dance attire from an outside source.
