Dance - unit set code MJ-A000025

Each unit within the Dance major sequence develops practical skills in contemporary technique and choreography and interrelates this learning with theoretical studies in dance history, analysis and aesthetics. There is an ongoing development of technique, craft, and theory over the three level levels, with class material becoming increasingly specialised and challenging as students progress. Skills in oral and written communication, personal and group management, reflection and decision-making are developed over the three level levels in tandem with the development of physical, compositional and research skills. This learning intensifies at level 3 with production and research project units which not only place students' work in a public and professional context, but also focus on the development of specialised skills in the associated technical, production, marketing and administration areas.

On successful completion of the dance major sequence, students should have the following discipline-specific skills:

  • an ability to demonstrate high-level contemporary dance technique
  • an ability to demonstrate well-developed independent choreographic practice
  • an ability to think and write analytically about dance and its values
  • an ability to manage artistic and technical aspects of dance promotion
  • an ability to learn and apply safe dance practices for maintenance of physical and personal wellbeing

Note: Enrolment in level 1 dance units is subject to audition (special requirement). For further details please contact Arts Student Support at the Melbourne campus at Burwood, Tel 03 9244 3909/3910 or email artsedstudentsupport@deakin.edu.au
