Conclusion • The DBE revised Annual Teaching Plans (ATP) for term 2 – 4 must be adhered to. • Protocols for social distancing must be developed for all practical class activities • All practical group work/activities must be removed and only done individually – no contact work • Class work to develop technique, fitness and safe dance practice to be done regularly even though not examined • Consideration must be taken for the wearing of face masks during class – content requiring aerobic and travelling movements might have to be reduced • The set solo for the final examinations should be at the highest level of complexity the learner can manage and should be based on the technical class activities so that appropriate technique, principles and fitness can be demonstrated. • No mask to be worn in the final practical examination – only appropriate social distancing from the teacher. • Final examinations to be filmed for external moderation purposes.
