Organize and develop artistic ideas and work.
Interpret intent and meaning in artistic work.
Dancers represent ideas, feelings, concepts and actions through abstract movements (move) and frozen body shapes (freeze).
Students who are developing physical control can begin move and freeze while sitting down. Movements can start small — with head, arms, hands, and fingers. Use the “freeze” prompt used often to enforce self-control and commitment. Individual students can describe the movement of one assigned partner.
Students may move throughout the room. Individuals may set their own movement, teach it to other students, then sequence multiple movements into choreography. Audiences can interpret the meaning behind group compositions.
