First time teaching dance.

Discussion in 'Physical education' started by N3il, Feb 19, 2005.

  1. Hi the Harry Potter scheme of work sounds fab, could someone please email me that scheme of work to?

  2. hello there

    i was ****TING myself teaching dance, but hey ho i thought, ill do it somehow....so i went to a mates and we made up this dance with michael jackson playing (beat it) - i formulated it around bullying and created this dance that they perofrm every lesson, just before i describe to them what sequence i want them to make up in groups or in pairs.....

    go through emotions with them, how you show them off, what SHAPES, LEVELS the body can use to DESCRIBE these emotions, tell them to tell you a silent story through dance....you'll be amazed what they actually come up with.

    take it easy, and remember the words, BODY TENSION, and BODY AWARENESS, as your tutor will love them!!!]

    Oh and in dance, i get my kids to keep saying EMOTION, Exaggeration etc etc..
  3. Hi im training in dance/drama and would be grateful for any schemes of work ks3/4 esp super heroes as thats our yr 7 theme at present! Cheers x
  4. hi ya, grease is a really good theme. i used 'we go together' it is great fun and the kids love it as well.
  5. Hi i have just been asked to do some dance with a group of very challenging yr9 boys and if possible would love a copy of the harry potter / matrix work. Thanks for anyone who can help. Merry xmas

  15. hi, anyone out there who can help me, i am a typical pe teacher and im struggling with teaching dance, im look for some inspiration for year 8 and year 9. also teaching GCSE and having a slow start. ANY help will be welcomed greatly email me katiealincoln@hotmail.com

  16. Hi Klincon,
    I am a PGCE student but have taught dance for 6 years and have myself been through GCSE dance. The most important thing you can do is try and get some up to date music in there. I remember being bored by the stuff I had to use. There's a few dance type tracks that would be good for a robot style dance (Theylike trying to body pop and stuff) There is one called "Bellisimo". I also enjoyed blues brothers and dragnet at school. Hope that helps!
  17. Gladiator dance! Anybody got any ideas? Help!
