Dance Themes 1 is a superb teaching resource that will help achieve various thematic related outcomes across the levels of creating, making and presenting as stated in the Arts National Curriculum Profile.
In the Dance Themes 1 video we explore the dance experience through the use of themes. For each theme we present a vocabulary of related movements based on and derived from the given theme. Using a selection of these movements we choreograph a sequence relating to the chosen theme. We then dance the choreographed sequence to music.
Using the supplied dance vocabulary of over 200 dance moves you or your students can then extend this sequence, or create a new sequence.
Dance Themes 1 covers the themes of Traffic, Jungle, Sea, Sport, Good Morning, Seasons, Body Language and Movie Titles.
Specifically composed music for the themes covered is included on the CD.
