In this unit you will continue to investigate the origins and principles of dance through the lens of diversification within the art form. This includes study of new approaches to developing dance and rethinking historical perspectives in examination of the influences that underpin the continuing contributions to the field. You will begin to unpack stagecraft design in greater depth gaining understanding of the scope for dance production using a technical framework, and increase competency to produce dance performance works in theatrical environments. You will also develop your understanding of how music and dance work together exploring concepts including rhythm, time signature, form, style and period. The relationship between movement and composition is explored, and your sensitivity and awareness of music advanced.

International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
