    I have my GCSE dance exam tomorrow afternoon and in the spec on the aqa website it says we have to know about 'dance for camera'. We haven't been taught this at all and I have no idea what is meant by it. If anyone who is sitting/has sat this exam has been taught this, could you please comment with what it actually means?!? :eek: Exam is 1.30pm tomorrow afternoon (15/5/13). Thank you in advance xx

    i did the GCSE and am doing the a level now, dance for camera is basically filmed versions of dances for example the dvd of a dance. i dont know what you have studied but there are sometimes changes for example making it shorter or cutting things out, i studied still life at the penguin cafe which has characters watching it (on stage) on the dvd but are not there in the live performance. benefits are that you can have zoomed in things, the choreographer can show certain bits they want to for example if 10 people are on stage they might just show two people for a bit. negatives are that obviously you may not always see anyone, dont get the atmosphere of a live dance etc etc, hope this has helped!
