Viva Voces
How to be successful
when answering a Viva
Voce question in your
Dance Studies.
What is a Viva Voce?
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
A Viva Voce is the oral component of the practical examination that is
either at the beginning or end of the piece. Students are given a
question to answer based on their work and course material.
The viva voce is an integral part of the practical exams. Its purpose is
to enable you to relate the theory components of the course to the
practical demonstration of the exams. It enables you to demonstrate
greater knowledge of dance as an artform and apply knowledge and
skills to your work developed in both core and major study.
In order to maximise your viva voce marks, you need to have an indepth understanding of the Areas of Study. The viva voce question
will be drawn from any of the dot points under the Areas of Study
headings, which are found in the syllabus.

an indepth understanding of the Syllabus Areas of Study.
пЃ¬
Use correct terminology and definitions, and show that you can
apply the key aspects of the question to the areas of study and
your dance / work.
Tips for the exam
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
Use your preparation time to identify key aspects of
the question and outline a structure for your answer
Address all components of the question equally
(sometimes questions will ask you about 2 or more
concepts in an area of study)
Demonstrate (physically) your understanding
Use relevant examples from your work to illustrate
your answer.
How to Prepare For a Viva Voce
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
A good way of preparing for viva voce questions is to construct
flow charts or mind maps based on the areas of study. These
mind maps will give you the basic structure from which to
answer the viva voce question.
Have a thorough understanding of the concepts in the Areas of
Study and know how to relate them all to your piece of work
After the first reading of the question, you have two minutes
preparation time. Use this time and your mind map to help you
structure your response.
You may write down points on the Viva Voce Examination
Sheet in your 2 minutes preparation time.
DO NOT write sentences, only trigger words, dot points etc
How to Conquer your Fear of
Public Speaking
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
Public speaking is a common source of stress for everyone.
Many of us would like to avoid this problem entirely, but this is
hard to do. Whether we work alone or with large numbers of
people, eventually we will need to speak in public to get certain
tasks accomplished. And if we want to be leaders or achieve
anything meaningful in our lives, we will often need to speak to
groups, large and small, to be successful.
The truth about public speaking, however, is IT DOES NOT
HAVE TO BE STRESSFUL! If you correctly understand the
hidden causes of public speaking stress, and if you keep just a
few key principles in mind, speaking in public will soon become
an invigorating and satisfying experience for you.
Principles of Public Speaking
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
Principle #1--Speaking in Public is NOT Inherently
Stressful
Principle #2--You Don't have to be Brilliant or Perfect
to Succeed
Principle #3--All You Need is Two or Three Main
Points
Principle #4--You also Need a Purpose That is Right
for the Task
Principle #5--The Best Way to Succeed is Not to
consider Yourself a Public Speaker!

Principle #6--Humility and Humor Can Go a Long
Way
Principle #7--When You Speak in Public, Nothing
"Bad" Can Ever Happen!
Principle #8--You Don't Have to Control the Behavior
of Your Audience
Principle #9--In General, the More You Prepare, the
Worse You Will Do
Principle #10--Your Audience Truly Wants You to
Succeed
Hidden Causes of Public Speaking
Stress
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
Thinking that public speaking is inherently stressful
(it's not).
Thinking you need to be brilliant or perfect to
succeed (you don't).
Trying to impart too much information or cover too
many points in a short presentation.
Having the wrong purpose in mind (to get rather
than to give/contribute).
Trying to please everyone (this is unrealistic).
Trying to emulate other speakers (very difficult)
rather than simply being yourself (very easy).
Hidden Causes of Public Speaking
Stress
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
пЃ¬
Failing to be personally revealing and humble.
Being fearful of potential negative outcomes (they
almost never occur and even when they do, you can
use them to your advantage).
Trying to control the wrong things (e.g., the behavior
of your audience).
Spending too much time overpreparing (instead of
developing confidence and trust in your natural
ability to succeed).
Thinking your audience will be as critical of your
performance as you might be.
