Dance

For the last few weeks we have been planning our own dances in pairs, threes or small groups based on a stimulus. Here are the pictures we are using to inspire our dances:

In our first lesson we had the opportunity to look at 4 pictures and discuss how they made us feel. Also, we tested different movements, like swirls, levels and using different speeds to show the different dynamics within the pictures. 

 

Mrs Sparrey has also started to teach us a short contemporary piece that we can use as the introduction for our group dances. 

 

Here are some pictures of our dances lessons: 

After spending 3 weeks planning and testing different movements, we had the opportunity to work closely with Mrs Sparrey to select a piece of music that we could use for our dance. Each group then had the chance to practise their dance, which was inspired by a picture stimulus, before having the opportunity to perform. Here are some pictures of each group explaining which picture stimulus they used and how this linked to their dance:
