Students will record everyday sounds and create a dance to the beat of the everyday sounds (a minimum of three) . Students will work collaboratively to choreograph and create a dance to the found sounds.
In this lesson students will compare and contrast different genres of dance with today's dance styles. Students will learn the four steps to the Charleston dance and add a complementary move of their choice.
This twelve-minute video from Teaching Channel features dance teacher Brooke Charlebois demonstrating how to use cooperative groups to structure the expression of creative movement and choreographic forms to convey global issues. The video briefly focuses on how embedded dance allows students to demonstrate their understanding of concepts in math, science, history, geography and language.
