The Arts Education course requires the completion of two modules from Dance, Drama, Music or Visual Art or any combination of these. The Dance modules aim to integrate dance with other areas of the Leaving Certificate Applied Programme. In Dance this is even easier than in other courses, as the stimulus for a dance piece can come from any other area within the programme.

The Leaving Certificate Applied Dance Programme introduces the student to creating, performing and appreciating dance. He/ she will gain a basic dance vocabulary, some improvisation skills, choreographic experience, and a fundamental appreciation of dance.
