Arts and culture

Grade 5

Personal and social skills

Module 4

Dance / movement

Activity 1

Warming-up and skill-building rituals , as well as body care must be implemented throughout the year: use basic locomotor and non-locomotor movements.

Locomotor movements:

Walking

Explore more variations of walking, such as:

with knees bent high, forward or sideward

with legs turned inward and outward

with legs crossed on each step

with legs stretched wide apart

with various arm and hand movements, such as: hands folded behind the back; with stabbing movements; hand clapping above the head; beating on chest; arms held in any position without moving; arms swung in various positions; etc.

Change of direction, level, step-dimension (short or long), tempo and force (e.g. light, strong or moving smoothly).

Suggested combinations with a number of variations, e.g. walking forward, clapping hands in front on one step and behind on the next; walking with legs lifted high and clapping hands below one leg and then below the other; walking on toes with feet spread, swaying from side to side, clapping hand above the head.

Create own combination.

Running

Explore variations of running:

change form, e.g. knees bent and lifted high up forward;

  • legs turned inside and outside;
  • use different arm and hand movements;
  • change special patterns, e.g. levels, dimensions of paces, routes,
  • focus (e.g. stare upwards, sideways or at a fixed focus point); change tempo.

Add different variations in different combinations, e.g. run forward with arms stretched forward, stare backward over any shoulder in a focused way.

Create own combination.

Non-locomotor (axial) movements(turn, bend, stretch, push and swing)

Explore bending and stretching of various body parts, e.g.

  • waist (forward and sideways); legs at knees and hip joints (lift legs);
  • change form by stretching (from small to big, outward in all directions) and contracting together with turning around the centre of the body (use correct breathing technique), at various levels, in different forms and with changing speed and force.

Suggested combinations:

  • succeeding outward and inward movements (stretching and bending in all directions) in a carried manner (legato); repeat in series of three or four pulsations (staccato);
  • move outward and inward with a turning, winding route);
  • fold hands together and stretch and bend elbows, make as many as possible changes with regard to direction, levels, force and speed.

Create own combination.

Swings

As in Grade 4, but add swinging of the legs (forward and backward; from side to side);

with sideways use of arms and chest (stand with legs astride, bend chest forward and then sideways, carefully swing chest like a pendulum: relax head and arms and allow them to move together with the chest only).

Use dance technique in order to increase stamina , power and flexibility .

Jumps

As in Grade 4, but with more control and force in the execution of jumps and the exploration of form, space, time and force: in space – change direction with semi and full turns in the air; change dimension, level, time and force.
