The teacher demonstrates how she designs and implements effective teaching strategies that are responsive to the local community and cultural setting of her Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. Dance is popular amongst the community, and the teacher promotes technical skills and knowledge of the learning area by using Hip hop dance composition to attract and engage students, to challenge them technically and creatively, and to connect to community and local culture.
The students attend a remote high school in Northern Western Australia. The teacher has been teaching dance at the school for 5 years, and the dance group consists of year 9 students, others from a specialist arts program and three students from the school's special education centre. The teacher supports students to build their skills and knowledge of dance by developing compositions based on their sense of identity and activities or places in their local community.
