After watching the fourth grade play, Imagine!, first graders were inspired to create their own ribbon dance performances. Emphasis was placed on both freestyle and synchronized segments. The students learned that fluidity and big arm motions helped create the most drama in their dance. This concept piggy-backed perfectly with their current unit on physical theater and how the use of body movement and facial expressions further elevated their acting. We videotaped all the performances, watched them back, and critiqued them. Everyone walked out the door energized and excited, with a little extra pep in their step!
