IB Dance (Standard Level)
The practice of dance helps to explore and value the diversity of the arts across history, the world and its cultures. The IB Dance course will help students to understand dance as a set of disciplines with their own background and assumptions, and to understand that these practices incorporate physical, intellectual and emotional knowledge. This course aims to appreciate mastery in various dance styles in traditions familiar and unfamiliar. Students will focus in three major areas: choreography, performance and research, and will aim to express ideas with self-assurance and proficiency. They will come to see that dance can communicate various world cultures from their school environment, the surrounding community and the globe.
*International Baccalaureate courses are two years in length, taken during a student’s 11th and 12th grade years.
