Term 1 Dance: Line dancing.  We were learning to keep in time with the music, with each other and remember the dance moves.  We also made up some dance moves of our own.  Ms Donald

Hula Hoop Creative Dance
We explored a variety of movements both frozen and with movement using a prop (hula hoop)
In the beginning we made frozen shapes using our bodies in a variety of different ways and levels.  Then we experimented with movement in and around our hula hoop, creating different ways to travel through, around or over it. Finally we combined both frozen images and movement together to create a partner dance.
Look at all the fun we had working together and creating our dances.

Volcano Dance
We have been exploring the dance element vocabulary of leaping, bursting, stretching and bubbling.  We then explored how we can represent these words through movement.

We looked at pictures that depicted the process of a volcano erupting.  We observed the different stages, slowly pulsing, bubbling, leaping bursting, powerful explosions.
The students then created dances that represented the different stages of a volcano erupting.

We are learning how to dance creatively using our body to show different levels, sequence and working together.  We use our body to show the initial stage, middle stage and the final stage of an volcano eruption. Children were fantastic! They used their growth mindset when doing something that are outside their comfort zone. Look at us!
