Creative dance fosters self-expression through development of movement skills; interpersonal skills and knowledge of body self. Children develop a vocabulary of movement through exploration of body actions, dynamic variation, spatial awareness and active modulation of impulses. Here is what the class flow looks like:
- warm up
- Exploration of themes and materials: themes; space, pathway, energy, tempo, shape etc. Materials; scarves, streamers, stretchy bands, body sox etc.
- Technique skills: leap, sashay, skip, moving to a beat, turning etc.
- Creating and showing: putting together movements that have been explored and showing them. To develop artistic skills in problem solving, seeing movement and speaking about movement.
