Middle School dance electives provide stimulating learning experiences for beginning and experienced movers alike; there is no dance prerequisite. Students will learn dance warm-ups and choreography based on an athletic style of modern dance, and improvise and experiment with ways to use space, energy and time in dance. Students will view videos of professional dance performances and, along with learning portions of the choreography, create movement inspired by the work. Students will both learn choreography created by the instructor and begin to experiment with their own choreography based on class improvisations. Dance at Bentley is about collaborating, experimenting, creating, discovering and enjoying movement.
