Advanced Grades 6-8 for Ages 15+
At Grades 6-8 learners are taught to perform with confidence, clarity and a sense of ownership of the material. They are learning to consciously integrate knowledge, understanding and skills in a secure and sustained performance. The learners should be able to demonstrate mature understanding of the material with authority and control through thorough and relevant preparation. The learners also combine skilful and appropriate use of voice, body and space with imaginative response and flair, to engage the audience wholeheartedly. They learn to demonstrate a discriminating and sensitive personal interpretation of the material, which conveys complexity and range of meaning (e.g. in mood, atmosphere, characterisation, feeling).
