Activity 3:

To be able to appreciate and performthe indian dance

[lo 4.1]

Research Indian dance by collecting pictures and information on this style of dance. If possible, watch Indian videos. Use this information to choreograph your dance eventually.

Notice the movement of the arms, head, body and legs.

Creating your Indian Dance

 Experiment with different arm movements typical of the Indian dancers you have come across in your research.

 Experiment with different hand movements.

 Experiment with different hip movements.

 Experiment with different spine movements.

 Experiment with different shoulder movements.

 Experiment with different leg movements.

 Select arm, hand, hip, spine, shoulder and leg movements.

 Combine your selected movements

 Choose Indian music and experiment with your selected movements and the music.

 Create your special Indian dance.

Activity 4:

To be able to cool down and stretch in a correct mannerafter dance activities

[lo 4.1]

It is important that the muscles used during the exercise are stretched or you will have “stiff” muscles for the next few days.

Choose music with a slow tempo.

Breathing exercise

 Stand with your feet hip-width apart, arms at sides.

 Lift your arms above your head while inhaling through your nose.

 While exhaling through your mouth, drop your arms and bend your knees at the same time.

Neck stretch

 Raise your right arm and then touch the left side of your head.

 Slowly pull the head to the right side towards the right shoulder while you drop the left shoulder.

 Repeat on left side.

Arm stretch

 Take the right arm across your chest and with the left hand slowly pull the arm towards your body.

 Repeat with your left arm.

Chest stretch

 Take arms straight back and clasp hands behind your back. Open chest area. Pull arms away from your body.

Back stretch

 Bring arms straight forward.

 Clasp hands and open up shoulder blades.

 Contract your stomach muscles and bend your body slightly forward.

 Keep knees bent.

 Pull arms away from your body and drop your head forward.

Hamstring and calf stretch

 Place one foot forward.

 Straighten knee of extended leg.

 Bend supporting leg.

 Lift toes of extended leg keeping the heel on the floor.

 Slowly bend your body forward from the waist, keeping your back straight.

 Place hands on knees. Hold stretch for eight counts.

 Change legs.

Quadriceps stretch

 Stand up straight with feet a hip-width apart. Lift one foot to the back, bending the knee (heel to buttocks). Keep supporting leg slightly bent. Hold and pull foot towards your buttocks with your hand. Extend other arm for balance. Hold stretch for eight counts.

 Change legs.

Shake all moveable parts of the body.

Repeat breathing exercise.

Questions & Answers

where we get a research paper on Nano chemistry....?
Maira Reply
nanopartical of organic/inorganic / physical chemistry , pdf / thesis / review
what are the products of Nano chemistry?
Maira Reply
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level
no nanotechnology is also a part of physics and maths it requires angle formulas and some pressure regarding concepts

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
yes that's correct
I think
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.
