Performance and Evaluation10 mins
Make time during every session to look at as much of the work created as possible. It’s great for the dancers to be able to see everyone’s responses to the tasks set, and it also gives you time to think about what is working and which direction you want to take the dance.
Recap the work that was done last lesson. If you filmed the last lesson, watch it together. Revisit the warm up from the first lesson to increase familiarity with the theme.
Ask the dancers to remember the movement phrases they created last week. You can build a creative exploration task from the warm up exercise.
