Dance: warming up

Warming up

Activity

To warm up and prepare the body before executing physical activity [lo 1.1]

  • It will be easier and more fun if you warm up with music. Choose music that is not too fast.
  • Before attempting any of the activities, you must warm up your body. Warming-up reduces the risk of injury and will make the dances easier to do.

Breathing and spinal warming-up

  • Inhale through the nose for four counts and gradually lift arms sideways.
  • Stretch your spine.
  • Exhale through the mouth for four counts and gradually lower arms.
  • Repeat breathing exercise.
  • Stand with feet hip width apart – knees slightly bent – arms down at sides.
  • Roll down the spine for 8 counts – starting with the head, shoulders, torso, hips.
  • Roll the spine back up for 8 counts – starting with the lower back, torso, shoulders and head until the back is straight.
  • Repeat 4 times.
  • Stand up straight – feet hip width apart – roll both shoulders backwards 4 times.
  • Roll both shoulders forward 4 times.
  • Take straight arms up to the sides – shoulder height – flex hands.
  • Keep arms straight and push to the right – shifting the upper body to the right – keeping hips and feet still.
  • Push to the left.
  • Repeat 8 times.
  • Put your hands on your hips – keep upper body still – rotate your hips – keeping legs still and feet on the floor.
  • Repeat 8 times.
  • Keep hands on hips and walk on the spot for 8 counts.
  • Lift your right knee 4 times.
  • Lift your left knee 4 times.

  • Lift your right knee 2 times.
  • Lift your left knee 2 times.
  • Lift your knees alternately 8 times.

The Plié (pronounced: plee-ay )

  • Open your legs wide.
  • Bend and straighten your knees – keep body straight– buttocks in line with your back.
  • Repeat 8 times.
  • Bring your feet together – feet facing outward – heels together.
  • Bend and straighten your knees.
  • Repeat 8 times.

Foot warm-up

  • Stand up straight – hands on hips.

  • Point and flex your right foot 8 times.
  • Point and flex your left foot 8 times.

Assessment

LEARNING OUTCOME 1: CREATING, INTERPRETING AND PRESENTING The learner will be able to create, interpret and present work in each of the art forms.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

1.1 in preparing the body, follows a teacher-directed warm-up and skill developing ritual, with attention to safe use of the body, for example

  • knees aligned over toes when bending;
  • articulation (toe-heel-bend) of the feet and bending knees when landing from jumps;
  • good posture at all times.
