Dance Leadership 11/12 is a highly specialized course for advanced dance students. In this course, students work with a junior grade 8 or 9 dance class as a mentor and choreographer. Students are challenged to lead warm-up and cross-floor activities, as well as through creative exploration, choreograph a piece that the junior students will perform in the end of the semester Festival of the Arts and Dance Celebration performance. Dance Leadership encourages highly motivated students to bring their knowledge and skills into the shared space with other dancers, while encouraging them to effectively communicate and problem solve. In addition, this course aims to expose students to potential career options in the vast and varied professional dance industry and creates increased autonomy as they consider their future experiences in dance.
