Dance / Levels 7 and 8 / Explore and Express Ideas
Content description
Use safe dance practice, elements of dance, body actions and improvisations to explore ways of making literal movements into abstract movements
  1. experimenting with realistic, everyday movements, for example, exaggerating the movement of a single body part such as the arm in eating spaghetti and blurring this into abstract movements
  2. analysing dances from a range of times and locations, considering how a single realistic movement can be manipulated from representational to symbolic
  3. asking questions about ideas from other choreographer’s work as a starting point for creating new work, for example, the choreographer’s intention for the dance, or ideas that students think the dance expressed
  4. using the elements of dance to develop new movements that still maintain the essence of the original movement
