VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS STANDARDS
Creative Process: Dance
Interpret the choreographic structures of contrast and transition, the process of reordering and chance, and the structures of AB, ABA, canon, call and response, and narrative.
Styles and techniques in dance are defined by the ways in which the elements of dance and choreographic principles are manipulated in the creation of dance compositions.
Analyze dance techniques and styles to discern the compositional use of the elements of dance and choreographic principles relating to dynamics, as well as to discern spatial relationships.
Dance employs various themes and arts media to engage the viewer, develop meaning, and communicate emotions.
Examine how dance compositions are influenced by various social themes and arts media (e.g., dance for camera, interactive, telematics).
The quality of integrated movement depends on body alignment and the synchronized use of major and minor muscle groups. Variety in body patterns, range of motion, application of the elements of dance, and skill level enhance dance compositions and performance.
