Dance 7


This unit uses a collective process to help students answer questions about place and explore ways to express it through Dance.

CP7.1 Create dance compositions that express ideas about the importance of place (e.g., relationships to the land, local geology, region, urban/rural environments).

CP7.2 Investigate and manipulate the elements of dance and principles of composition including tension and resolution.

CP7.3 Create and refine transitions within choreographic forms (e.g., ABBA, narrative).

CR7.1 Respond to professional dance, drama, music, and visual art works using analysis, personal interpretation, and research.

CH7.3 Investigate and identify a variety of factors that influence artists, their work, and careers.
