We have finished off the term rehearsing our dances and finally filming them in front of the green screen. We have been practising ‘how to be a good audience’ and focused on ‘what good TEAMWORK looks, sounds and feels like’.
Students have been working in small groups to choreograph a dance. They have had to focus on a number of choreographic devices such as timing, cannons, locomotor movements, isolation and freestyle. They have been using an assessment matrix to assist in self reflection and peer feedback. Teamwork and how to work with others has been a big focus over the last couple of weeks as each group works out how to make the best use of their time and create their best dance together.
Dances are being filmed and preformed in front of other members of the class to give a realistic performance feel to their dance creation and to assist in self reflection and assessment.
