Five Elevations

Five Elevations

Students will demonstrate five types of elevations (jumps) and will be assessed on alignment within each jump, as well as the control of each landing. Since the elevations are present in most styles of dance, the genre of dance used in this assessment should be that used in the teacher’s course.

This item has not yet been field-tested.


These are analytic rubrics. 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.
