Introduction

Creative dance is concerned with evolving rhythms and patterns of movement which can symbolise or represent human activity. It can spring from anything in human experience but the ‘expression' is always in terms of movement. A dancer uses rhythms and shapes in the same way that a painter might use colours and textures.

Learning Outcomes

The student will:

  • develop knowledge, understanding, and skills of creative dance
  • plan, compose, perform, extend, and refine movements in creative dance contexts
  • perform phrases showing control and sensitivity to the style of the dance and to the music and/or accompaniment
  • perform short phrases which include a clear beginning, middle and end
  • explore and compose movement motifs/phrases with clarity
  • co-operate in-groups to discuss, select and perform phrases.
