LESSON 3:

Dance / Movement #2: Further Exploration

Students will explore dance and movement, and create a routine to suit a storyline. In small groups of around 4, students will create a narrative in 8 “actions” using a storyboard. They will then create a visual representation of each “action”, and a corresponding movement that they will use as part of their dance routine. Each group will present their routine to the class for discussion – the audience can try and guess what the story was from the movements to witness.
