Dancing a Spooky Narrative

Dance > Language


Join dance artist Lou to learn choreography to retell a narrative piece.


Activity Notes

  • Students will learn a dance for the beginning and middle of a short narrative piece written by Louise Paquette.
  • They are invited to complete the story by writing 3 sentences to complete the narrative:
    1. A sentence that tells us what “it” is
    2. A sentence that tells us the narrator’s reaction to “it”
    3. A sentence that tells us how the story concludes
  • When students have finished writing their narrative, they will interpret their story through movements.

Artist Notes

  • Can you create dance phrases to lyrics in an appropriate song you like?
  • Can you write your own story and then create a dance to it?
  • Can you exchange stories with a friend and retell using dance?
