West Virginia College- and Career-Readiness Standards For the Arts- Dance Education

The study of dance provides students with the skills to perform, create, and appreciate dance. Students will experience a variety of dance concepts, ideas, and techniques. Advancing personal knowledge of a variety of dance concepts, ideas, and techniques, students develop as dance artists. In dance education, students evaluate personal actions, commitment, and discipline necessary to achieve dance goals discovering an individual voice as an artist performer. Health literacy is developed as students identify strategies and approaches which can ensure the health and care of the dancer’s instrument (body). Civic literacy is developed as students explore the influence of culture, historical period, and context on the creation and interpretation of dance.
