There’s always a place for creation…a folk dance with a twist, a chance to explore the xylophone, or an opportunity to see what your body can do with one word…but pulling these ideas from our students can be challenging. Let’s go back to the Schulwerk roots of playfulness, discovery, and wonder as we explore these ideas and more through student-led choices, improvisation, risk-taking, and more. We’ll unearth the unexpected, so join us on the journey!

Come out and join the NDVC as we delve into some Drumming & Dance experiences that will spark your imagination and bring some new ideas into your creative classrooms.

I Can Relate to That - This session will provide you with a number of ideas to reinforce basic dance concepts with your students in interesting and unusual ways. As movement teachers we are constantly looking for engaging ways to reinforce basic dance concepts with our students. I have used these particular activities with a wide variety of age groups. There always seems to be something that connects with the students.  Here we will focus specifically on several key dance elements that will develop our student’s creativity and expressiveness in the dance medium.

 

Dance Unexpected - Be inspired to explore and create two very different choreographies based on common, every day activities. In the first portion of this session, SLEEP INTERRUPTED, I will work with participants using the very ordinary act of sleeping as the inspiration for a dance. Here we want to focus on allowing individuals to create their own interpretation and exploration within the piece. As we work through the choreography process, participants will be encouraged to expand on the basic movement and make it their own. In our second piece, WHILE I WAIT, we will create a dance based on waiting. This one will be done from a chair as we explore waiting in a unique and creative way.

 

Build a Beat – in this session, participants would be given the opportunity to have some hands-on drumming experiences leading into the opportunity to create their own simple drumming ensembles. Time will be spent on explaining what elements need to be contained in an arrangement in order for it to be successful. This activity could also be done with other non-pitched percussion
