Creative Process:
Lucinda Lorentz
55:51
Yoga pictures with words is a wonderful way to help get students involved. They love seeing if they can achieve the moves and love helping one another, especially in balancing.

I wanted to be sure you all saw this comment from Kathryn. When you all post, be sure to select "A;; panelists and attendees" "Teaching those look fors are important. Teaching how to use language to response to observation- "it was good" is not enough, this strand welcomes opening that critical thinking component
Kelly Bisogno
57:46
Ánd this comment from Deedra: I had my level one class put themselves into small groups where they worked together to create a short story. They then created dance phrases to enact the stories.
Kelly Bisogno
58:20
From Kathryn: Writing for Dance..... great book to help students speak to the creative processes and write to properly describe their experience.
Kathryn SheehanSmith
58:57
Dance Trailblazer of the month- Identify one figure monthly for students to learn about
Kathryn SheehanSmith
59:34
Talk about current popular Dance TV shows, and the trends-choreographers-contexts of those performances
Rebecca Hodal
59:45
Small group dance-making: That sounds like a rich and engaging process and experience for the students--also learning collaboration!
Lucinda Lorentz
01:00:38
I like the small group dance-making.
Kathryn SheehanSmith
01:01:15
Popular line dances? Know & have relationships with the local studios.
Kathryn SheehanSmith

Kathryn SheehanSmith

Found much success with preservice dialogue prior to watching any dance performance, teaching students how and what to observe during the performance. If a historical performance, make relevant real-world connections to the impact of that performance and those look fors.

Dr. Hampton has a wealth of knowledge! Lucky to have her on this panel.
Rebecca Hodal
01:04:45
re-creation of excerpts from great choreographic work (presented with research into historical/social contexts)
Kathryn SheehanSmith
01:04:56
Dance Teacher magazine has a "history' article monthly. I would pull those article and create short 5-10 questions on those persons, from there pull more historical context of that person
Lucinda Lorentz
01:05:27
I have used dance to help teach direction, counting, collaboration, the importance of space, and exercise.
Kathryn SheehanSmith
01:05:34
Poetry and Dance connection. Creating movement to the spoken word
Rebecca Hodal
01:07:25
One of my favorites! Especially original poetry from students...
Kathryn SheehanSmith
01:07:42
Citizenship- Hope Hunter from Woodside does amazing job with our Honor Society taking dance to younger students, inspiring interest in dance as they come closer to high school.
Hope Hunter
01:08:11
Thanks, Katie!
Tarin Hampton
01:08:59
Thank you everone, for your input and energy today!
Deedra Harris
01:09:57
I do group folk dance projects. Each group picks a folk dance, research it, put together a presentation and then teach the whole class. My kids really enjoy this project.
Rebecca Hodal
01:11:14
A great approach to inclusivity, diversity-
Tarin Hampton
01:12:02
Excellent idea and activity Deedra Harris. By providing background information before teaching a dance motivates students and gives them important "reference-points" to enhance their learning experience.
Kathryn SheehanSmith
01:12:16
Excellent point!!!! That is an important part of the learning process, as we age and life changes, so does our approach to dance. The collaborative group of people that "make" the art forms is a large community. Very good for students to hear the 'journey' of other professional to see how they have integrated through different jobs in the arts
Tarin Hampton
01:13:21
Katherine Shee, important input. Thank you!
Kathryn SheehanSmith
01:13:24
Bill T. Jones has a Master Class that uses "The Grid" that is very space specific choreography.

Also wonderful activity done by Hope Hunter of Woodside.

The ability to edit video is becoming a necessary skill for any artist in this changing times.

My students wanted to create a "Christmas dance". Being hesitant about doing this in a very diverse public school, I threw is back to them to flesh out. They created an amazing step routine to a trapp remix of carol of the bells. Not ready for public performance but certainly an experiment in student agency.
Rebecca Hodal
01:16:52
Combining creative imagery with anatomical information is such a great strategy-
Amber Corriston
01:17:42
Building off of Deedra’s idea, after studying several folk dances from around the world, I then have students create 21st century folk dances based on their current high school experience. The folk dances need to be able to repeat and either be 4 sets of 8 or 8 sets of 8. They create in groups and then teach the rest of the class (which also helps with self-confidence and musicality/counting). The students love it because it involves current ideas or movements and understand how ideas change over the years. (i.e. A few years ago everything had the whip in it or a dab, and now it’s different. I learn a lot too!) They love this and learn so much.
Kathryn SheehanSmith
01:18:43
Technique is the foundation of dance. So imperative that we keep technique at the forefront of any dance education.

Inside Ballet Technique (Grieg) is also a good accessible reference-
Kathryn SheehanSmith
01:19:53
Stretching for Dance is a great resource, the illustrations of muscles and it's connection to technique are really impactful.

Tarin Hampton
