The curriculum expectations for the courses in dance, drama, music, and visual arts

given in this document are designed to allow schools to develop courses that focus on

particular aspects or areas of the subject. The following is a list of some of the possible

areas for focus in dance, drama, music, and visual arts:

dance: ballet, modern dance, African dance, jazz dance, dance composition

drama: production, Canadian theatre, music theatre, acting/improvisation

music: vocal jazz, instrumental music, creating music, electronic music

visual arts: printmaking, sculpture, painting, ceramics, film/video

Regardless of the particular area on which a course is focused, students must be given

the opportunity to achieve all the expectations for the course that are set out in this


A student may take more than one course for credit in the same subject and the same

grade in dance, drama, music, or visual arts, provided that the focus of the courses is

different. For example, a student could take two courses in music in Grade 10, earning

one credit for each; the focus of one of the courses might be on vocal music and the other

on instrumental music.

There are no provisions for the development of courses that focus on particular areas

in media arts. The course description in media arts provides a comprehensive outline

   of the knowledge and skills that are covered in that course.
