The New Zealand Curriculum provides the framework for this inquiry, allowing the participants to situate themselves within the context and reflect on their meaning of teaching choreography. This research revealed four dominant emerging themes. The themes were: ● Teachers Diverse Meanings ● Student Context ● Pedagogical Choices ● The Curriculum en
