Level-I-dancing-1.19.12-001In A White Room

Students will explore contrasting emotions and qualities of movement in imaginary coloured rooms

  • Divide the room into two spaces, using tape or furniture to show the separation between the two
  • Teachers and students will choose a colour for each of the two “rooms”, ie Black & White or Red & Blue
  • Students will brainstorm ideas and emotions associated with each colour, ie Red: fire, heat, anger & Blue: cold, water, sadness
  • Students will dance between the two rooms, using their movements to show the ideas and emotions for the colour of room they are in
  • Try labeling the rooms with animals or geographical locations, or use 3 or 4 different rooms at once
