Weeks 1-2:

Introduction to Dance and Ballet

The first two weeks serve as an introduction to the basic concepts of dance and ballet. Students will understand the elements of dance (time, space, dynamics, and relationships), and practice basic ballet positions (plié, tendu, jeté). The activities are designed to be inclusive, with differentiation techniques for students of varying abilities.

Week 3-4:

Introduction to Jazz and Hip Hop

During weeks three and four, students are introduced to jazz and hip hop. They will understand the basic style and rhythms of jazz dance, practice basic jazz movements (isolations, pliés, kicks), and learn about the basic style and rhythms of hip-hop dance. These weeks are all about building on the foundation laid during the first two weeks and starting to develop more advanced skills.

Weeks 5-6:

Introduction to World Dance and Review & Assessment

The final two weeks focus on the introduction to world dance and review & assessment. Students will understand the diversity of dance styles and cultures worldwide, and be able to perform a simple world dance routine. The last week serves as a review and assessment period, where students' progress is evaluated, and areas for improvement are identified. This allows students to showcase their understanding and skill development and gives them a sense of accomplishment and pride in their progress.
