This unit uses dance and gymnastics to explore the science and art of movement education and performance skills. Inclusivity and critical analysis are used to explore both the theoretical and practical perspectives.

Through dance and gymnastics seminars, students investigate how to structure a safe learning environment that includes mutual respect, support, inclusivity and co-operative participation in health and physical education. Emphasis is also placed on student understanding of skill progression, sequence and transfer in dance, gymnastic and foundation skills. In small groups, students research health issues and investigate the role of creativity and communication in production of a movement piece.

Through research and discussion, students develop and apply knowledge and understanding of key themes explored through participation in practical activities. This is achieved through teacher modelling, student observation, discussion and participation in the seminars.
