CREATING PERFORMANCES: Learning how to create and Demonstrate in dance performance CREATING PERFORMANCES Choreography in Dance: Choreography in Dance First things first: What is choreography? Choreography is the sequence of dance movements when combining skill related components together. Choreography is a form of art that uses creativity to develop movement in a cohesive and coherent manner. Choreography in Dance: Choreography in Dance How is Choreography used? Choreography is used to present the material created in a formulated manner. It demonstrates movements in motion that require skill and technique to complete. Intentional Choices in Choreography and Movement : Intentional Choices in Choreography and Movement Checking in Questions: Checking in Questions 1. Can you state what choreography is in your own words? 2. Can you give an example of what skills you think will be implemented and utilized in creating choreography? 3. Can you expand upon that idea further with specific ways it can be used? Creating Choreography: Creating Choreography What skills are needed to create? There are six main skill related components we will use in this lesson to help create choreography. Skill Related Components: Skill Related Components Balance Reaction Time Agility Coordination Explosive Power Speed Applying Skill Related Components in Dance: Applying Skill Related Components in Dance An application is how you will incorporate that specific strategy in dance choreography movement. On the next few slides will be the listed skills, their definitions, and an application for how they can be used. Balance : Balance ability of an individual to find even weight distribution without falling over Application examples: Keep your upper body in constant motion as you aim to balance on one leg. Remain with the weight on your supporting leg when developing your working leg in the air. Reaction Time: Reaction Time the time it takes for a person to react to something that is occurring Application examples: As your partner lifts you into the air, allow the energy to flow through the limbs of your body over time demonstrating a cause and effect reaction time. As your partner taps you on the shoulder, allow your response to be that of a person that reacts to sudden motion. Agility: Agility ability of a person to move quickly, effectively, and efficiently Application examples: Move from one type of movement to the next changing body part location in space. Running during the dance piece moving in different directions and changing courses. Coordination: Coordination ability to use a combination of different skills to work together to complete one task Application examples: Using the upper body movement at the same time as the lower body. Turning while changing spotting directions. Explosive Power: Explosive Power ability to apply energy and force to a task at hand Application examples: Moving from the floor to standing in a sudden and lively movement. Turning and landing finishing in a leap to the floor. Speed: Speed ability of someone or something to move at a quick pace consistently Application examples: Continuing the piece at a consistent fast pace never slowing down. Opposing sped and moving as slow as possible. Checking in Questions : Checking in Questions 1. Do these components seem hard to implement into a created piece? 2. Can you provide examples as to why or why not and explain why you think that? 3. What are some possible ways you can combine these together? Putting it Altogether: Putting it Altogether After learning about each different skill and practical applications for each, see if you can interweave one skill with another when thinking through choreography. Take the time when doing so, to write down notes to track your progress. Checking in Questions : Checking in Questions 1. If you were the teacher how would you expand upon this lesson further? 2. Does this creation lead to other important lessons or topics that you think you could implement such as adding music? 3. If given the opportunity how would you create a piece to this choice of music? (serves as audio) Slide18: Now that you have learned about the skill related components and can identify and explain what they are, lets apply them into a choreographic piece. Applying Skill Related Components to Dance through Choreography: Applying Skill Related Components to Dance through Choreography In this exercise you will be asked to implement three skill related components into a woven piece of choreography. It should be evident to the audience member which components you are using. Make sure you think through the processing questions when creating your piece. Slide20: Enjoy the process, you can do it. Don't get discouraged :)
