Dance  - Enter Achilles
I am teaching this to my high ability 8th Grade dance group. The scheme explores contact work; physical theater; lifts; weight-sharing and transitions through creating a dance which has 3 clear links to 'Enter Achilles'; but is actually based on peer pressure rather than pressure to be what is considered 'masculine'. It incorporates contemporary; jazz and ballet technique as well as all three elements of performance; choreography & appreciation. The attached PowerPoint is an testple of what I might use to present lesson 9.
