Students will create a dance based on an original theme or idea. They will present the dance to the class. Students will explain the artistic intention behind their dances and how movement choices were informed by the intent.
This assessment is designed to allow students a wide range of choice in themes or ideas but could be adapted to align with cross-curricular initiatives. Care should be taken to make sure that a narrower focus is still broad enough to allow several possible artistic intentions on the part of the student. For example, while “nature” would be a broad enough topic, “pond ecosystems” might be too narrow.
