In 2018 Townsville Grammar School will be introducing Dance as part of the Year 10 Curriculum offerings in 2018.
This new curriculum offering will complement the Dance Troupe and Performance Troupe currently offered as co-curricular activities to Middle school and Senior School students.
Dance as a subject will be a specialized study of dance exploring dance contexts, genres and styles, from ballet and musical theatre to hip hop and pop-culture dances. The curriculum includes performance tasks, choreographic tasks and appreciation tasks, and will be assessed through both practical and theoretical components.
“Our North Ward Campus has a state-of-the-art, fully equipped Dance Studio where our students enjoy choreographing and trying out new dance moves. I am excited to offer our Grammar students the opportunity to make Dance part of their Year 10 curriculum. As a tertiary trained Dance teacher, this is the pinnacle of my teaching dreams.” - Jacinda Laing, Dance Troupe Director at Townsville Grammar School
