Description: 

This physical education elective focuses on dance performance, dance composition, and an academic investigation of cultural dance.

 This is an IB course that will lend to credit earned at the SL level.  An internal assessment is required that consists of multiple recorded solo or duet performances.  The external assessment will require the creation of two dance compositions that are 6-10 minutes in length, accompanied by an 800 word analytical statement reflecting on the process of composition.

 An additional component of this course is a Dance Investigation (1500 words) which is an analysis of two dance styles from different cultures, one of which may be familiar to the student.
