- Mrs. Risa Anderson
This dance class is designed to train intermediate and advanced dance students with prior dance experience. Dance Company is a performance based class that demands student artists to attend all rehearsals, dance shows, competitions, community events, and field trips. This course includes demonstration, verbalization, and identification of dance movements/terminology, as well as a composition component in a variety of Dance styles such as Ballet, Lyrical, Contemporary, Hip hop and Jazz. Emphasis will be placed on Artistic Perception, Creative Expression, Auditioning, Historical and Cultural Context, Aesthetic Valuing, and Connections Relations and Application. Students achieve advanced proficiency in these standards through technique training, teacher and student choreography projects, guest choreographer training, development of stage presence and studio etiquette. Student artists will compose and perform as individuals and as members of small and large ensembles. All class rehearsals, outside rehearsals, dance concerts, competitions, community events, and field trips are apart of the student artist overall grade. This class will be held at both high school and middle school campuses; a teacher will be present during all walk overs.
We will be dancing for a great cause! Please let me know asap if you have a conflict :-)
