Recording Solo Dances

Recording Solo Dances

Each student will video record a peer’s dance performance for 30–45 seconds. The student will follow the movement of the dancer and demonstrate the ability to keep a recording device steady while maintaining the dancer in frame.

Student performers will need to recall a solo dance that they choreographed previously. The dances can be something that was assessed previously and/or learned in another class period. This assessment item can be used with students performing any solo dance piece learned or created in a previous class.

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.
