Collaborating to Express a Message Through Dance

Collaborating to Express a Message Through Dance
Kathy Kampa-Vilina

Grade 4 students use various strategies to create choreography to express a message.

Students in Grade Four have started exploring ways to express a text using creative movement elements, such as sharp/smooth and powerful/delicate.  They worked in groups of five to create dance movements for the song "Fight Song" by Rachel Platten. Students used various strategies to work together to create their own dance choreography. They will share this as a message to the seniors at the SPA Luncheon.

Grade 4 students work in many different ways to create dances.
