    Yeah see that's the thing, I don't need to. English tends to come a bit more naturally, and unless you do both, don't judge. Why repeat a subject I did well in? If you did do dance and told me you breezed through it, I would accept your argument.

    As for calling me dumb, I wouldn't have thought it was up to you to make assumptions of my intelligence based on the fact I dance. For arguments sake, last year, a good percentage of those with a 90+ UAI at my school did dance. Our dux did dance, and my years assessment dux - who will most likely be the overall dux does dance too.

    But anyway there's not much point me arguing coz I can see that "Open minded" isn't a word you would use in these forums.

    Lol, I've looked at basically every forum and this is the only "subject" that people say shouldn't be included. How many people who study dance go on to be professional dancers? Compare that to how many people who study Legal Studies go on to be solicitors etc. Its not really a base for further studies either, like Maths or English.

    Are you kidding...You don't become a solicitor from doing legal studies in your HSC. So I've compared it for you... Probably the same percentage of people that do legal studies in the HSC who actually decide to persue a career in law.

    Smile Re: Extension 2 dance

    i would have to agree with amyleaG is not as easy as many lead themselves to believe


    i don't i could compare it to any other subjects of mine because there totally different i think that any coarse should be given merit for the time and effort out into it (not to mention have to listen to drumming part1 of fallen angels and the 'eep eep' of jardi tancat a thousands times... im sure any dance student can sympathise with me on this =])

    i don't care weather its scales me up or down i chose the subject for the love of dance and i can now enjoy dance not only as a hobby or form of entertainment but can appreciate it as an art form.

    Re: Extension 2 dance

    I chose dance because I love it! Same as I chose my other subjects! Why would I do legal studies and get a crap mark because I don't like it, when I could do dance and get a good mark because I enjoy it?

    You shouldnt judge a subject till you've done it, whether you think its easy or not.

    Talking Re: Extension 2 dance

    Uuuuuuuuh...WTF! WILD TANGENT!
    This post was initially about 4 unit dance - which by the way i got 96 hsc mark. =) yay
    How did everyone else go? (most people do 2 unit - just as hard)
    My dance moves were so hard-core that my patella was incinerated by intense friction...i was hospitalised for 2 weeks, and conducted the remainder of the examinations telepathically...
    Oh, and i dont agree with one of the lasts posts that said that dance shouldnt be a course in the HSC, dance is for females (and some males - call them gay, but you'll be surprised how many are NOT), so it is meant to broaden the selection of courses. So dont say that it 'shouldn't be in the course selection' when other people might enjoy it.
    BTW, school is not a base of intellegence, it is merely an indicator of how dedicated a person is to learning new things and studying. What i mean is that even people who get trades, can potentially be more intelligent than a person who, say, gets a uai of 90 or so. Most people seem to totally ignore that FACT, and as a result, become quite ignorant.

    Re: Extension 2 dance

    Wow, when I did dance back in 07, I didn't even hear about extension dance. I guess that's like ext music which my school had.
    Well done to everyone who did dance =)

    Re: Extension 2 dance

    Is there really such a thing as Extension 2 dance?

    I would just like to say to the people exclaiming that 'dancers are dumb' that that is a ridiculous generalisation of the stereotypical dancer.
    It's like saying all Asians need glasses, though an extremely bad example.

    I personally am doing a few practical subjects, which by no means implies that I am not a smart person. I am also doing extension one and two english, if I choose to do economics or extension latin as my other subjects, and not to peruse a career in accounting or medicine - that is my choice, and you do not need to say that the people choosing to do dance are dumb.

    Just as a side comment, I would like to see majority of the people doing extension subjects, doing a triple turn into a tilt, or trying to convey emotion in a creative form. If anything the subject dance shows higher order thinking, because a main part of the course is expressing a subject through dance, which I can tell you, is not easy.

    Re: Extension 2 dance

    You people are terrible. Just because you don't have a creative bone in your body, doesn't mean you should attempt to degrade the esteems of those more talented than you. Appreciate other people's passions the same way they appreciate your math/science/whatever. And if passion isn't one of your assets, then you're seriously lacking in the true depth of a human being.

    Its easier for them to put down dance then to admit that it isnt the biggest bludge ever

    if only you knew ..

    Dance requires more work then some other subjects, it requires thought and creativity aswell as analysis and applying knowledge. you'd all be s***ing yourselfs if you had to answer a viva voca question about performance quality and safe dance and manipulating movements. keep you mouths shut

    No, dance is not just 'prancing about'.
    There are three components to the subject - Appreciation, which is theory based; Performance, where you perform a dance your teacher has choreographed; & Composition, where you compose a dance.

    It requires thinking/thought, and having the ability to convey an intent to an audience. The subject requires a knowledge of history, art etc.

    How can you judge what you don't know?

    I've never heard of Extension 2 Dance before, does it exist irl?

    I thought the only extensions were in languages, English, Maths and History.
