Archives Epreuves de danse 2014
The variations proposed by the French Ministry of Culture are teaching aids. They are designed to form a didactic tool allowing each teacher to transmit dances in the context of a choreographic culture.
We strongly recommend that teachers consult the enclosed leaflet, which presents for each variation a biographical note of the choreographers and musicians as well as comments on each dance.
The end of cycle 1 and 2 variations can be technically adapted by teachers, who have excellent knowledge of their students and are seeking for them the most appropriate physical commitment. The variations for end of cycle 3, DNOP (national diploma of professional orientation) in dance, Bac TMD (Baccalauréat in music and dance techniques) with dance option, EAT (French technical capability examinations), are extracts from repertoires and, as such, must respect the artistic writing. Moreover, some variations can be danced both by boys and girls, according to the choice of the student, candidate or teacher.
