Dance Basic Composition Skills Scheme of Work
My first draft of a Basic Composition Skills Scheme of Work for Dance. I am teaching this to my high ability 8th Grade Dance group. The scheme is particularly related to composition task, but uses a group (trio/quartet suggested) approach instead.The scheme explores motif and motif development through learning & developing extracts of 'Forest' by Robert Cohan, 'Revelations' by Alvin Ailey and 'A Christmas Carol' by Massimo Moricone. It incorporates contemporary, jazz and ballet technique as well as all three elements of performance, choreography & appreciation.
