Curriculum content descriptions

Improvise and structure movement ideas for dance sequences using the elements of dance and choreographic devices (ACADAM005)

  • using contrast and repetition to explore and generate new movement in response to stimuli such as stories, memories and the environment
  • exploring known movements to find alternative ways of performing them, for example, waving hello or shaking hands and then doing the same action at a different level, in a different direction, bigger/smaller, using a different body part
  • altering movements in a set, teacher-directed or student-devised dance using the elements of space, time, dynamics and relationships to express ideas, for example, increasing the size of a movement to represent growth
  • selecting and combining movements using choreographic devices such as contrast and repetition, for example, combining movements learned in a dance from Asia with other dance movements, or repeating movement to show emphasis
  • Considering viewpoints – forms and elements: For example – How did the/does your dance begin? Was/is there a middle part? How did/does the dance end? What shapes did you see/make? (individual and group)
