Elements of Dance



Dance along with Joanna and explore how to adapt movements using the elements of dance.


  • A moderate amount of personal space.

Activity Notes

  • Students will learn a short dance phrase will explore how different energies and efforts applied to the movement can affect its meaning (using soft, flowing movements may evoke a more calm, peaceful dance, whereas using high levels and jumps might bring to mind happy and energetic feelings).

Artist Notes

  • Students are challenged to extend the dance phrase using their own movements.
  • Can you use levels or directions in your phrase?
  • How does changing the speed of your movement affect the overall feeling of your dance?
