ACTIVITY 2

TO IMPROVISE AND CREATE DANCE SEQUENCES: THE CHEERLEADING DANCE

[LO 1.2]

Cheerleading is a fun activity to do and you can perform your cheerleading routine at the next school sports meeting.

1. Execute the following movements to music.

Focus must be placed on:

space (high/low, large/small, forwards/sidewards/backwards, near/far, narrow /wide).

time (fast/slow, regular/irregular).

force (strong/light, smooth/percussive).

2. There are five basic body activities: Explore these activities with movement:

travelling ( moving from one place to another).

turning (to move around an axis).

elevation (to move to a higher level).

gestures (motion of the hands, head or body to express or emphasise an idea or emotion).

weight transference (to change body weight from one point to another).

The Music:

Choose music with a mid, to fast tempo beat.

“Mickey” from Toni Basil is ideal for this concept.

Listen to the music first before you attempt your movements.

The Pompoms:

If possible, make pompoms – two each – one for each hand.

Simple but effective pompoms can be made from streamers or any strips of fabric, plastic, etc. that will move when handled.

The Dance:

The cheerleading routine should not be more than 3 minutes.

3. Below are a few basic movements for a cheerleading routine.

Stand with your back to the audience (hold 5,6,7,eight).

Turn around with your arms bent on top of each other straight in front of your chest.

Punch forward with your fists.

Turn your arms in a circle, brushing your thighs.

Bring arms back up as in first position.

(Beat 3 and four).

Put your left fist on your chest and your right arm straight out.

Bring your right fist to your chest.

With your arms still bent at the elbows, bring your fists up beside your head.

At the same time bring your head up as well.

Bring your arms down in the same bent fashion as your head.

Touch your toes.

Hold your left arm in a low v.

Punch your right fist at your left hand.

Bring your right fist back to make a low v.

Punch your left fist again.

Bring it back.

Snap your arms to your side.

Kick with your right foot.

Bring hands up to your head and slide them down to your hips.
