Dance!

Today, all of the Junior Division is watching some crazy dances that were selected by Andrew. Last time, Andrew picked a ballet, so we were all expecting something very traditional. Instead, he picked some really cool contortionist breakdancers to show us. The reactions as all of us were sitting together in one room were amazing.

Check out David Elsewhere:

We talked about how David really needed to think about the shapes that his body took, including both robotic and organic movements between controlled shapes.

We are getting much better at communicating about dance now, as we've seen so many different types and we can compare them to one another and use our dance vocabulary effectively.

Talk at home about body, timing, space, movement, energy and relationship in dance.
