Scoop Why IGCSE Dance? Benefits of Engaging in Dance Ability to use multiple learning skills Ability to work collaboratively and independently

Students creativity and abstract thought is developed. Students fitness and physical condition relating to dance is developed Development of positive body image and care of the body

Opportunity of expression through another medium - the body IGCSE Dance, much like other arts, reflects society and can teach students a lot about human nature. Artificial Things is a piece that teaches students about human rights and the notion of unity and co-existence. Shadows explores the horrors of the 2nd World War in Europe under Nazi rule. Creativity is not just for artists. Its for business people looking for

a new way to close a sale; its for engineers trying to solve a problem; its for parents who want their children to see the world in more than one way. This creativity does not just happen. It stems from regularly engaging in problem solving techniques and thinking outside boxes. Letting go of fear. (Twyla Tharp) Imagine society without the civilising influence of the arts and you'll have to strip out much that is educationally vital. Take the collective memory from our museums; remove the bands from our schools and choirs from our communities; lose the empathetic plays and dance from our theatres or the books from

our libraries; expunge our festivals, literature and painting, and you're left with a society bereft of a national conversation about its identity or anything else. (Peter Balzagette) For IGCSE Dance you should Enjoy dancing and expressing through the body. Enjoy creating dances.
