Dance by Number

Dance by Number

Students will work individually to create three solutions to a movement problem by varying non-locomotor (axial or stationary) movements chosen by number in relation to space, time, and energy. After exploring and creating their solutions, students will fill out a reflection giving reasons for the choices made.

This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.


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.
