Performance Dance is a subject in which dance and the arts are pivotal in providing a space where students can confidently navigate their cultural identity.

 This is a full-year course specialising in Pasifika dance skills. Students demonstrate techniques and movements associated with Pasifika dance genres or styles or that include personal ways of moving. They demonstrate the skilled use of balance, accurate use of space, timing, and energy.
