Partnering

Partnering

Students will work with a partner to create a short dance piece highlighting partnering skills of contrasting and complementary shapes, taking and supporting weight, and rhythmic movement transitions. Dancers will be scored based on the provided Teacher Scoring Rubric. Part One of this assessment involves watching a YouTube video of The Artichoke Dance Company: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4poS5UXiHZA. If you cannot access this, you may substitute any short (one-minute) video of a modern dance company performing with improvisation and weight sharing.
