The Certificate III in Dance qualification is designed to provide an indepth look at the performing arts industry while honing their technical skills ready for the industry. We believe that a career path in the arts requires individual performers to possess skills in many different areas. It's not enough to be a great dancer, you must understand the industry to know your most direct path forward. RAW has created a unique industry simulated path to guide our students. Gone are the days of a course giving a student a booklet to complete without any assistance or real learning. RAW offers a complete holistic learning environment where students will navigate through our simulation tasks following a real-life path from start to finish. Areas within this journey include dance composition, industry business skills, performance, fitness, nutrition and technical development. Our course is broken up into three simulated assessment tasks, each focusing on auditioning and working for a fictional company called Tripudio.
Term One 0/4
Performing arts industry
Cluster One focuses on learning about the performing arts industry, understanding auditions and preparing appropriate materials and understanding their body, fitness and nutritional requirements. The unit CUAMUP301 Prepare personal appearance for performances will play an integral role throughout all of the terms, as the students learn about makeup, hair and costume influences, application techniques and costume modifications, maintenance and repairs. Then take this skill and apply it to their auditions, composition work and performances. The units covered over this task include:
Term Two 0/4
Creating new work
Equipped with the industry knowledge from cluster one, this cluster guides the students to produce a completely original dance piece for a touring production of Tripudio. This task covers the entire process, from conceptualisation to performance. Working in teams to create the performance they will work cooperatively with others and deal effectively with issues and problems, organise movement in order to compose a short dance sequence, prepare physically and psychologically for live performances, and incorporate artistic expression into dance performances. All these tasks will be completed under the supervision of their trainer, experienced dancers and dance teachers. The units covered over this task include:
Term Three 0/5
Enhance your performance
The final task will see the students analyse multiple dance pieces to develop a deeper understanding of technique, composition skills and artistic development. The students will transform their group task into a longer dance production that includes group, solo and partner work, featured designed lighting, staging, edited music, costumes, hair and makeup. The skills and knowledge from the unit, CUAMUP301 Prepare personal appearance for performances, feature throughout the year. They are an integral part of every term. The units covered over this task include:
Showcase rehearsals & performance
In term four our focus moves to the end of year showcase. Most weeks will be all about performing. Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse! There is also the opportunity to catch up on any outstanding assignments from earlier terms. While we ensure all the theory required to complete your qualification is included, to become successful in the industry there is always time for performing. The performance program includes both mid-year and end of year variety performances. Each student will be involved in multiple performances throughout the year culminating with our showcase end of year performance.
