Second-grade students in dance class establish use of the body through structured and unstructured movement, exploring the elements of dance through a variety of techniques, forms, and dance traditions. As they create, interpret, and replicate steps, movement patterns, shapes, rhythms, and dances inspired by a variety of stories, music, ideas, cultures, images, and technologies, students stretch their imaginations, strengthen their bodies, and learn to make choices in a risk-free environment. Instruction fosters skills and knowledge that enable students to respond to dance in ways that facilitate creativity with artistic expression, self-discipline, and a connection to other content areas and cultures.
Special Note: This class may include opportunities to participate in extra rehearsals and performances beyond the school day.
