Module 9

Social dances through time

DANCE

Activity 1:

To reflect on and compare: social dances through time

[lo 2.7, 2.4]

In this module we shall be looking at how social dances reflect their time. Your educator will guide you through the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s and reflect and compare the dance styles, music and fashion and how these aspects have changed through the decades.

Exercise 1: The 50’s, 60’s and 70’s

  • The class is divided into groups.
  • Each group is assigned a different decade to research.
  • Research and deliver a presentation of your assigned era to the class.
  • Your presentation should include a demonstration of the dance style, e.g.
  • pictures,
  • oral presentation,
  • video,
  • music,
  • fashion, etc.
  • Each presentation should last five to ten minutes.

Exercise 2: Class Discussion

  • After the presentations the class discusses the differences and similarities of these eras.
  • Discuss the influences of history and world events on the style of social dance in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.
  • Discuss the influence of music on the dance styles.
  • Discuss the different factors that influence and affect dance in our culture.
  • Think about today’s style of social dance and try to predict how dance will evolve in the future.

R eflection Q uestionnaire

Reflect on your research process and presentation and answer the following questions:

1. Which resources did you use and which were most helpful to you?

2. How well did your group collaborate on this assignment?

3. Was the information you found accurate and informative? Why? Why not?

4. Did this approach help you gain a better understanding of the evolution of social dance? Why? Why not?
