Clubs

As coordinators of Curricular Complement and Enrichment Activities, our primary concern is “teaching how to think intensely and think critically”, creating students, as recommended by the Student Profile at the Exit of Compulsory Schooling, “free, autonomous, responsible and aware of themselves and of the world around them, capable of dealing with change and uncertainty in a rapidly transforming world, capable of thinking critically and autonomously, creative, with collaborative work skills and communication skills”.

In this way, the school, a space par excellence for productive education, sees the training of students as essential for their preparation for the globalized world. Here the seeds of the future are sown and we seek to inspire and prepare students to be true active actors with a view to their insertion in society.

Project description

The dance modality at Escola Secundária Jaime Moniz, active since 2003/2004, aims to emphasize the need for recognition and appreciation of dance in school situations as knowledge, perception and creative process.
This modality aims to provide secondary school students with the opportunity to continue developing their taste for dance and to expand their potential in the world of art through movement, after completing basic education.
As students reach adolescence, it will be convenient to create teaching that launches them into their growing physical, cognitive and sensitive capabilities, as well as providing a study of dance made up of an intense challenge of relationships with other curricular subjects, with themes from the their interest and collective universe. This will also be a way to include dance in curricular enrichment spaces.

Target Audience

Students from 10th to 12th grades.

Project objectives

Knowing that dance encompasses concepts, procedures and attitudes and needs to be approached in all its dimensions, some objectives were outlined for its teaching, enabling students to:

  • acquire basic bodily skills for creation and interpretation in dance;
  • develop kinesthetic, spatial and temporal perception;
  • promote reflection on values ​​and attitudes from a learning perspective for the exercise of responsible citizenship and promoting inclusion.

Activities to develop:
