BDC Dance offers students the opportunity to complete VCE studies in Dance. We offer separate theory and technique classes allowing you to complete your technique classes at BDC Dance or your chosen dance school. BDC Dance offers VCE students multiple performance opportunities throughout the year as well as senior choreographic workshops with visiting industry experts and excursions to VCE Dance focused workshops. VCE students also have access to many resources including costume, prop and resource libraries.
VCE Dance helps students develop an understanding and appreciation of dance as an art form that is based on the investigation and communication of ideas, themes and concepts. Students create and perform their own dance works as well as studying the dance works of others through performance and analysis.
Throughout the study students undertake training in technical dance skills which enables them to safely execute a diverse range of expressive body actions. Students develop and refine their choreographic skills by exploring personal and learnt movement which can be created and arranged to communicate the expressive intention of the dance-maker.
The study is made up of four units, Units 1, 2, 3 and 4. There are no prerequisites for entry into Units 1, 2 or 3, however you must complete Unit 3 prior to commencing Unit 4.
Units 1 and 2 are assessed at BDC Dance based on individual levels of achievement.
Units 3 and 4 are assessed by VCAA. The students level of achievement will be determined by school-assessed coursework (SACs), an end-of-year performance examination and an end-of-year written examination. For more information go to www.vcaa.vic.edu.au
