  • analysing dances from a range of times and locations, and considering how a single realistic movement can be manipulated from representational to symbolic
  • using the elements of dance to develop new movements that still maintain the essence of the original movement
  • Considering viewpoints – meanings and interpretations: For example – What was the choreographer’s stated intent for this dance? What ideas did you think the dance expressed?
