For years, K-12 teachers have been relying on the invaluable tools and blueprints in "Building Dances" and "Building More Dances" to help their students put movements together. Now, with "Building Dances, Second Edition," the original text has been significantly expanded and updated to give you even more tools to guide your students as they experiment with the creative process--even if you've never taught or choreographed dance.

Like the earlier books, this guide puts you in the role of facilitator rather than demonstrator. Using the dance construction models provided, you'll explain the material, teach the necessary skills, direct the action, and assess the outcomes . . . letting your students focus on the creative work.

"Building Dances, Second Edition," follows the same winning approach that made the first edition so popular. It takes you step by step through the choreographic process, with sample lesson plans, warm-up ideas, and seven easy steps to follow when building a dance, plus even more great material:

-A convenient, expanded, ready-to-use deck of Deal-A-Dance cards -Updated dance-building activities, called Dance Construction Models, reformatted and expanded to include loads of new information and six new activities-An expanded glossary explaining important dance terms in everyday language-New forms and checklists to make the assessment process easier for you and your students

This edition contains a total of 15 Dance Construction Models, including 6 never before published. Each construction model provides concrete ideas to help students shape dance movements, perhaps to create a scene, communicate a story, foster an idea, or interpret a piece of music. And now the Dance Construction Models have been redesigned to make them even easier to use Each one includes a description of the activity or procedure, an example, cross-references to the national standards for dance and for physical education, easy adaptations for three different grade levels (grades K-4, 5-8, and 9-12), and criteria for student assessments. You'll find four types of sample rubrics for each one, with specific criteria for movement skills, cognitive skills, choreographic and creative process, and social and aesthetic skills.

The unique Deal-a-Dance cards--one of the most popular Dance Construction Models--have also been expanded and reformatted to get students even more involved in creating and assessing their own work. The cards provide more than 230 movement ideas to get the creative juices flowing. Each card presents a definition of a selected movement term, a description of that movement, multiple suggestions for students to try, challenges that encourage them to put movements together to form phrases and dances, and a self-evaluation question. The cards are excellent hands-on tools that allow students to work at their own pace, either individually or in small groups. You can use them for a single lesson, a unit, or an entire semester of work.

This edition also contains new ideas to help you connect dance to other disciplines and increase students' engagement, plus new criteria for writing rubrics and suggestions on how to expand simple dances into whole productions for PTA and other student performance settings.

Whether you're a physical education teacher, drama coach, music teacher, dance teacher, classroom teacher, or recreation specialist, this book will help you stimulate your students' imaginations. Use it alone or together with the companion resource, "Building More Dances," to help your students experience the joy of building their own dances.

Gesture, Gender, Nation - Dance and Social Change in Uzbekistan (Hardcover): Mary M. Doi Gesture, Gender, Nation - Dance and Social Change in Uzbekistan (Hardcover)
Mary M. Doi
R2,061 Discovery Miles 20 610 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The national dancers of Uzbekistan are almost always female. In a society that has been Muslim for nearly seven hundred years, why and how did unveiled female dancers become a beloved national icon during the Soviet period? Also, why has their popularity continued after the Uzbek republic became independent? The author argues that dancers, as symbolic girls or unmarried females in the Uzbek kinship system, are effective mediators between extended kin groups, and the Uzbek nation-state. The female dancing body became a tabula rasa upon which the state inscribed, and reinscribed, constructions of Uzbek nationalism.

Doi describes the politics of gender in households as well as the dominant kinship idioms in Uzbek society. She traces the rise of national dance as a profession for women during the Soviet period, prior to which women wore veils and kept purdah. The final chapter examines emerging notions of Uzbek, as regional and national groups contest the notion through debates about what constitutes authentic Uzbek dance. Doi concludes with a comparative discussion of the power of marginality, which enabled Uzbeks to maintain a domain where Uzbek culture and history could be honored, within the Russocentric hegemony of the Soviet state.

If you've shied away from teaching dance-related movement skills in your class because you're unfamiliar with the subject or think your class won't be interested, consider this: Creative movement exercises help young people develop important learning skills, such as group dynamics, listening, problem solving, and language. Plus, creative movement skills are a fun way to introduce students to using movement as a form of expression.

Now there's a resource that makes it easy for you to include creative movement exercises in your class so that your students can learn these valuable skills. "Perpetual Motion: Creative Movement Exercises for Dance and Dramatic Arts" helps you get both female and male students excited about dance, build essential skills, and improve educational outcomes--even if you've never taught movement exercises before.

"Perpetual Motion" introduces more than 100 movement exercises organized around six themes: rules, recipes, props, poetry and prose, objects and images, and integrated arts.

Everything you need is here to inspire students to step out of their movement comfort zones and develop their own potential. Each chapter identifies a theme, specific learning skills, recommended exercises, and a strategy for stimulating class discussion about the exercises. Plus, teachers have the convenience of being able to select exercises from 12 categories of learning skills.

You can adapt these versatile exercises with ease and success to challenge beginners as well as skilled dance students. Within each exercise you'll find variations you can use to increase the difficulty, add variety, and create more than 90 entirely new exercises.

The book includes other features to make the movements easy to teach: -A 15-minute warm-up routine builds teachers' confidence.

-A glossary of movement terms ensures clear communication when integrating projects.

-A handy "finder" chart lets you quickly identify exercises that meet the learning skills you want. "Perpetual Motion" will enable any teacher to successfully integrate creative movement exercises into general classroom, physical education, dramatic arts, and language arts classes. There is no better reference for overcoming students' fears about dance and helping them develop vital learning skills that will pay off in any educational setting.
