Comparing/Contrasting the Choreographic Process
Students should have previously created a dance phrase that will be used to reflect on the choreographic process for this performance task. Guidelines for this dance phrase should include specific requirements for length, style, or other parameters based on local curriculum. For Level 1 students, suggested length of original student choreography should be between 32 counts and 48 counts of movement. Students will compare and contrast their own choreographic process to that of another choreographer.
Each student will partner with another student to observe the dance phrase of their partner and interview and discuss their partner’s choreographic process. Each student will be asked to take notes and complete the “Observation Questions.” Using all of this information, students will complete a Venn diagram template comparing and contrasting their choreographic process to that of their partner by identifying similarities and differences between the two.
This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.
