91592: Perform a repertoire of contrasting dances

Updated September 2015. A section defining what is meant by ‘repertoire’ has been added to address issues that have arisen from moderation.

A repertoire of dance consists of refined, rehearsed, polished pieces at performance standard. These must be kept in a performance ready state meaning they can be shown with short notice and on repeated occasions. This is similar to the idea of repertoire in a dance company, where a programme of dances may be performed in multiple venues and dances may be rested or re-mounted.

Students are expected to perform three 2 minute routines to achieve this standard, but it is not expected that these routines are necessarily from three entirely different genres unless this is appropriate in the class programme. Instead each of the three dances undertaken must be contrasting in their nature. This might be in such aspects as style, tempo, technical requirements, dynamics, mood and/or emotional content.
