Year 9 Performing Arts

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: A. Hughes

Students will gain a well-rounded experience in all the Arts: Dance, Drama, Music and Visual Art. Students will work together to produce a multi-disciplinary performance based piece. Students will have the opportunity to specialise in one or more of these areas, according to their strengths and preferences and work within those disciplines to contribute to the presentation of the final collaborative piece.

Students would spend four weeks in each of the Arts, spending time developing subject specific skills, working in a group to plan their performance piece. Students will work with subject specialists to mould their final piece for assessment. At the end of the term, students will present their final performance piece. Throughout the devising process, students will select which of the areas they would like to perform in.
