This advanced course consists of classes in ballet, jazz, and contemporary dance. Students work alone and in groups to create, explore, and refine movement and choreography. Together with the teacher, students create a repertoire of dances in a variety of genres. Grade 12 students work as captains to mentor and support grade 9, 10 and 11 students.
Auditions for this course occur in May only. This course occurs after school from 3:00 to 5:00 on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the entire school year. Extra rehearsals are required close to performance time. Students in this course perform in the school’s Festival of the Arts and Dance Celebration performance at the end of both semesters, the Burnaby Dance Festival, and at several other venues throughout the year.
