Other Work Samples for:

Drew and partner have demonstrated a high level of competence in composing a dance sequence based on shapes. The written response provides a general reflection on the creative process and product but there is confusion in the understanding of locomotor movement. Thorough knowledge and understanding of the elements of dance and the choreographic process is evident. The routine is creative in the interpretation of shapes, although the first shape could be clearer. There is interesting use of timing in the alternation between shapes and transitions. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by students performing at grade B standard at the end of Stage 3.

Grade B
