Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to signify the dance teachers’ interpretation of the concepts codes andconventions within the subject Dance Technique in the Upper Secondary Schools of Stockholm. As astarting point, I am using my own experiences as a dance teacher and that I have come across teachercolleagues who has felt insecurity what the concepts really comprises. For this study, I have made fivequalitative interviews with operative dance teachers, who I chose to interview since they have earlierexperience of the subject Dance Technique. The purpose of the interviews is to gain a broader opinion ofhow dance teachers look at the proficiencies, the assessment of the proficiencies and the equivalence ofthe assessment between different schools. For my analysis I am using discourse as text analytical method.The result shows that the teachers interpret the codes and conventions as knowledge about behaviorconnected to order, dance genres and traditions. With the dance background and the aesthetic choices as abase, the individual teacher decides which behaviors that are bound to which genre. By analyzing thestatements during the interviews and the Dance Technique curriculum, I have identified the currentdiscourse for how the concepts are being interpreted. The discourse describes that the dance teachers havesimilar dance experiences, which results in a consisted opinion in choice of behavior. This consistencyresults in an overall equal assessment.
