Dance: cooling down and stretching

Cooling down and stretching

Activity

To cool down and stretch the muscles so that they function normally in their other classes [lo 1.1]

Did you enjoy the ballet class?

  • Yes, it was hard work, but now we are going to change the pace. It is important that you stretch your muscles after the exercises. If you do not stretch after the class your muscles will feel stiff and sore the next day.
  • Choose slow music to stretch by.

Breathing exercise

  • Stand with feet hip-width apart, arms hanging at the sides.
  • Inhale through the nose raising arms above the head.
  • Exhale through the mouth, dropping arms and bending knees at the same time.
  • Repeat 4 times.

Upper body stretch:

  • Take arms to the back – clasp hands – pull arms away from the body – opening the chest area – hold stretch for 8 counts.
  • Take arms up above the head – clasp hands – pull arms towards the ceiling – hold stretch for 8 counts.
  • Bring arms forward – clasp hands – pull arms away from the body – opening shoulder blades and stretching the back – hold stretch for 8 counts.

Hamstring stretch

  • Stand up straight – legs apart – cross legs (one leg over the other with straight knees) – slowly bend body forward, trying to touch the floor with your hands.
  • Change legs and stretch again.

Leg stretch

  • Stand up straight – raise right knee up to the chest – pull bent knee to the chest with both hands – hold stretch for 8 counts.
  • Change legs.

Recovery:

  • Shake all movable body parts.
  • Bow to your teacher to say thank you for the class.

Well done – you have completed the first leg this term.

Now you will go on to something different in the arts and culture world – visual arts.

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.
