Dance Technique 6 (DT6) culminates the training experience with the objective of fully equipping students for entry into the professional dance sector. Students hone their ability to adapt to and physically embody diverse movement vocabularies through exposure to a wide range of leading dance practitioners and teachers. Three classes in Contemporary dance technique, two in Ballet technique and one in Yoga per week form this subject with class content and approach emulating the experience of the open class. In line with industry standards, and consolidating expectations established in previous (DT) subjects, this places full responsibility for learning with the student. Some classes in both Contemporary and Ballet will be delivered in smaller groups to facilitate greater attention to individual needs. Working at a pre-professional level in both Ballet and Contemporary techniques students are challenged to develop their highest potential in terms of technical proficiency, movement range, cardiovascular endurance, expression and musicality. The open class format experienced throughout the semester will be the model for assessment.

Intended learning outcomes

This subject will enable the student to:

  • Demonstrate ballet and contemporary techniques with an advanced level of physical and technical proficiency.
  • Display advanced skills relating to the acquisition and retention of highly complex movement sequences.
  • Demonstrate advanced performance skills within the contexts of ballet and contemporary techniques.
  • Demonstrate a professional approach to technique classes through capacity to work
