City Dance - Dance scheme based on the city, Y5/6

City Dance - Dance scheme based on the city, Y5/6

This is a dance scheme based on the city, for years 5 & 6. Over the course of the five lessons the work builds to a whole class dance. The music used is Axel F from Beverley Hills Cop. This track can be found on many synthesizer CDs; I have suggested Synthesizer Hits 2 which can be found on Amazon. There is a 10 slide PPT presentation to support the unit. Lesson 1: The children work out a sequence of walking, changes of direction and freezing in groups. Individually they then add in city actions to a walking and freezing sequence. Lesson 2: The children create their own movements for the city actions. They then create a sequence using these actions in pairs. This pair work then builds into group work. Lesson 3: The children think about actions done in the morning before leaving the house, and what happens when people meet in the street. In groups they work on one city action and by the end of the lesson they are starting to put together the whole class dance. Lesson 4: The children use exaggeration to stretch out the actions and with a partner they create a sequence using these movements. In pairs they use mirroring and matching. Lesson 5: The children create city buildings and skylines, in pairs then groups. These are then added in as the finale to the dance.
