    **NGHS 2021-22 Dance Class Placement**

     

    Current NGHS Dance Students:

    Students currently taking dance (during the 2020-21 school year) in the NGHS dance program should register for the next level course. Mrs. King and Ms. Pettiford will make sure that students who should skip a level, or remain in their current level are in the correct class. Teacher recommendations will be based on student’s participation and performance this school year and where they will be most successful.

     

    Students not in dance at NGHS:

    Any student can register for Dance Beginning. Students with significant dance experience, who are not currently enrolled in dance at NGHS, may submit a video for consideration of a higher level. The details for video submission are below and will be accepted on a rolling basis through May 31, 2021.

     

    Videos should include:

    • 1.5 minute self-choreographed solo that highlights the student’s strengths as a dancer.
    • Answers to the following questions:

    What is your dance training and experience? 

    How did you create the choreography that you just shared?

    *Videos should be uploaded to Google Drive and shared with kingk@mygcsnc.com

    About the Dance Program

    The dance program follows the current North Carolina Essential Standards for dance (based on the National Standards for Dance Education) and focuses on dance as an art form within the academic setting.

    The NGHS Dance Program strives to help students perceive and communicate who they are and their ideas of the world around them through choreography and Contemporary dance technique. Dance engages the whole person in moving, thinking and feeling. Students participate in two departmental concerts per year to share what they have learned and expose the larger community to the art form of dance.

    Program Goals:

    • To teach dance as a communicative art form
    • To sustain a community in which individual and cultural differences are respected and celebrated
    • To offer a safe environment for students to explore, take risks and grow as individuals and artists
    • To encourage the community to understand and appreciate the art form of dance
