Organize and develop artistic ideas and work.
Interpret intent and meaning in artistic work.
A designated leader improvises movement in place, very slowly and fluidly, as an individual, a small group, or the whole class focuses on following the movements exactly and simultaneously, as if a mirror.
Students who are developing physical control can mirror while sitting down. The teacher serves as the leader while the rest of the class mirrors full body movement, but remaining in their seats. The leader moves only one body part at a time.
Individual students can serve as the leader with a group or partner. Students can also work in small groups of four, in a diamond shape, with rotating leaders as the group makes a quarter turn to face a new direction, thus following a new leader. Mirroring can be a part of a group’s dance composition.
