ACHF Arts Education
Arts learners can recognize and perform various Afro-Brazilian dance techniques and identify them within creative works. Arts learners will demonstrate various Afro-Brazilian dance techniques, create, perform and identify elements in a creative work. Progress in classes will be evaluated via observation, class discussions, and verbal responses in a critical response session held during arts learners’ final performance and company performance. 2: Concordia College will address the needs of first time arts learners in dance through diverse, interesting and accessible dance class offerings. The success of this outcome will be assessed through written evaluations by participants, who will be asked to identify their prior dance experience, expectations for the residency, reflection on their experiences and comment about their likelihood to return for future dance opportunities at Concordia.
Arts learners participating in this project can recognize and perform many Afro-Brazilian dance techniques, and they have a better understanding of the art form. 2: The diversity of the genre of Afro-Brazilian dance provided many opportunities for exciting artistic engagement in the community.
