What's in a Name?
Students will solve a composition problem within the context of their personal experience through their application of the elements of dance, including planes of movement, rhythmic change, and dynamic variance.
In this task, students will generate movement based on the initials of their names. This is done with the use of weight shift and multi-directional movement. They will then consider their personal associations to their names and use those responses to apply embellishments and revisions using the key concepts listed above. Their embellishments should include planes of movement, rhythm, and dynamic variance. The revisions of their work should impact their posture, gesture, and movement quality.
