Aesthetic Process

Aesthetic Process

Students will compare and contrast their choreographic process to that of another choreographer, identifying similarities and differences.

Using an open-ended choreography opportunity, such as the production of a student dance concert in which students create and perform in each other’s pieces, advanced students will fulfill the roles of choreographer and performer.

This item has not been field tested by Michigan teachers.


This is an analytic rubric. The column on the left shows the dimension that is being measured in the student’s performance. The levels across the top row indicate the performance level in the dimensions. Occasionally all dimensions and performance levels are exemplified by multiple students in a single recording.
