Creative expression and performance defines participation in the art of dance and percussion, integrating the application of body sciences and fitness with the principles of dance and percussion. Students develop and apply knowledge and skills of dance, choreography, and musical composition in a variety of styles. Students begin learning simple movement patterns and advance to the performance of complex dance phrases.  Fundamental dance and percussion skills and

techniques are demonstrated by the teacher and practiced by the students during class. Students learn by comparing and contrasting their movements, rhythms, and time with those of their instructor. Safety and the importance of warm-up are emphasized.  Students memorize movement sequences representative of several dance styles. Students perform short movement sequences to demonstrate technique and create phrases (patterns of dance sequences) in choreography.
