6. The Pelvis

  • Place your hands on your hips.
  • Press the pelvis back as far as you can.
  • Change the position of your hands and press the pelvis forwards as far as possible.
  • Try to isolate the movement in the pelvis keeping the knees and torso in position.
  • Repeat 8 times focussing on relaxing the thighs and buttocks in order to make the movement possible.

7. The Hip Roll

  • Relax the head and the back.
  • Get into the hanging position (exercise 3).
  • Come up to the vertical, sustaining a relaxed quality in the pelvis.
  • Start to move the pelvis gradually and carefully in a circular motion.
  • Imagine that you are pushing something away from you in all directions as the pelvis rotates.
  • Gradually ease into a rhythm of movement keeping your eyes closed and allowing the associations to come.

8. Arms and Shoulders

  • Stand with you feet hip-width apart – arms hanging down the sides.
  • With the eyes closed, focus the mind on the right arm.
  • Endow it with a sense of lightness.
  • After a few seconds your arm will begin to rise as though lifted by a cushion of air.
  • Concentration is imperative.
  • The arm will rise to shoulder level and above.
  • Allow the arm to return to your side.
  • Transfer your focus to the other arm and repeat the process.

Activity 2:

To incorporate dramatic elements in group improvisation: human rights

[lo 1.5]

  • Being young is so cool! Not only do you have your entire lives ahead of you to mould and live as you choose, dreams to fulfil and futures filled with as much amazement and wonder as you wish, but you also have laws that protect you so that you can do all these wondrous things!
  • You have your own rights. On 1 June 1979 the United Nations unveiled a document called the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which lists various children’s rights. In South Africa we’ve got special documents protecting your rights. The constitution, African Charter and the United Nations Convention of the Child keep us informed on how to protect children under the age of 18.

Here are some of the rights and responsibilities in South Africa’s constitution:

Your Rights Your Responsibilities
The right to be equal before the law. You should respect other people and accept that they are equal to you.
The right to life. You should not hurt someone or threaten their lives.
The right to freedom and security. You should not abuse your partner or your children in your home.
The right to privacy. Knock on someone’s door before entering.
The right to slavery or forced labour. Children are not allowed to go to work.
The right to freedom of assembly, demonstration, picket and petition. Don’t carry a gun or dangerous weapon in a protest march or demonstration.
The right to education. You should remain committed to learning.

Before attempting the next activity think about the following and how you can create an improvisation depicting one of these themes:

The right to choose life

  • It’s your right to say no to sex if you feel unsure or pressured to do it.
  • No sex is the safest sex, so exercise your right to choose a life free of sexually transmitted infections, unwanted pregnancies and the killer HIV/Aids.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
