Other Work Samples for:

Terry and partner have demonstrated an adequate level of competence in composing a dance sequence based on shapes. The written reflection provides a sound description of the creative process but some of the shapes used in the composition do not appear to match those on the worksheet. There is evidence of an adequate level of competence in exploring, refining and organising movement and a sound understanding of the elements of dance. Some shapes are locomotor, rather than stationary, and the element of timing is unclear as the shapes have not been held for a uniform number of beats. An interesting use of relationships has been displayed. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by students performing at grade C standard at the end of Stage 3.
