KS3 Dance ‘Hairspray’ 6 lesson SOW delivery PowerPoint

KS3 Dance ‘Hairspray’ 6 lesson SOW delivery PowerPoint

This ‘Hairspray’ 6 lesson SOW and delivery PowerPoint is for teachers teaching dance at KS3. In the school where I teach, every year we have a Year 9 musical (this year was Hairspray) and all the Year 8 pupils watch during a matinee performance. This SOW has been created for my Year 8 pupils after they have watched our Year 9 performance of Hairspray. The delivery PowerPoint includes questions which refer to the performance that they have watched and the whole point of the SOW is for them to learn the finale dance ‘You can’t Stop the Beat’. You may be thinking, ‘What am I going to do with this resource?’. Well, you’re going to need to adapt it to suit you yes but it will work in a variety of ways. First of all, it can be used as a tutorial of how to turn a series of rehearsals into a series of lessons (learning other key dance skills and terminology in the process). You could use It as a guide to create your own SOW for whatever musical your school has just put on or simply show a YouTube clip of a live performance of ‘You Can’t Stop The Beat’. We haven’t chosen next years musical yet but I will be using this SOL and will adapt it to fit. The delivery PowerPoint includes starters in the form of ‘bell activities’/‘talking points’ for each lesson, homework and assessment activities at week 3 and week 6 to record progress.
