STEP 1: Choose different locomotor –travelling moves and combine them with Axial movement. If you would like to use the moves in the YouTube link.... feel free to borrow the moves and then make variations on them by changing the direction, level, tempo, or other dance elements. Explore each move using different elements to create your own movement.
STEP 2: Create a dance sequence using the moves you chose. Take the movements and change at least one element (tempo, level, direction) to make the second sequence. (Usually a sequence is a series of 8 counts)
STEP 3: Challenge: Now try taking your dance sequence and use the choreographic device – RETROGRADE- this is taking a few counts and doing them in reverse order. For example: 1,2,3,4....4,3,2,1 This will create the final sequence of your dance.
STEP 4: Put all of the sequences together to make a 3 sequence dance and post your project to the flip grid.
