Indigenous Culture Performance

Year 6 - Communication Through Dance 
Students learn to explain how the elements of dance, choreographic devices and production elements communicate meaning in dances. They describe and compare the characteristics of dances from different countries and cultures from the past, in the present day, and potentially into the future.
