VET and VCE DANCE

In 2019 we were thrilled to add VCE DANCE and VET VCE DANCE Programs to our timetable. Both of these subjects provide dancers with opportunities to use years of hard work and dance tuition, towards their Year 12 VCE Certificate. Students external to our Studio are also welcome in these programs, and we negotiate a timetable that will suit your dance and academic studies. We have a dedicated classroom  for this program, and classes are run by qualified VCE teachers, with years of experience in the Dance Education classroom

VCE VET Dance is a Certificate II in Dance. It is a pre-vocational course, and will prepare you to audition for further (tertiary) training in dance as a teacher, performer or choreographer. The course gives you a taste of what the industry is like so you can work out if you want to pursue dance as a career.

ATAR contribution

VCE DANCE

VCE Dance provides opportunities for students to explore the potential of movement as a means of creative expression and communication. In VCE Dance students create and perform their own dance works as well as studying the dance works of others through performance and analysis. In each unit, students undertake regular and systematic dance training to develop their physical skills and advance their ability to execute a diverse range of expressive movements. Students also develop and refine their choreographic skills by exploring personal and learnt movement vocabularies. They study ways other choreographers have created and arranged movement to communicate an intention and create their own dance works. Students perform learnt solo and group dance works and their own works. They also analyse ways that ideas are communicated through dance and how dance styles, traditions and works can influence dance practice, the arts, artists and society more generally.
