In this one time meeting, students will get moving to a showtune from a popular show: Wicked! We will begin class with a brief warm up to wake up our bodies and feel out the space, and then move on to learning a basic dance combination set to about 50 seconds of the song "Defying Gravity." Dance steps may include slides, grapevines, pivots, kick ball changes, and many more. We will take a brief break at the halfway point to get water and discuss what we know about the show, and share any...
By the end of our session, students will have a new knowledge of different types of dance steps used in traditional musical theater choreography, as well as how to piece together different portions of a combination. They might also learn a new song!
As a baby, preschool, and elementary theatre and music teacher, I have worked with students ages 5 months to 12 years in this format. I believe that moving our bodies is a great way to keep kids active and discover new ways to be creative, while challenging them to remember specific movements in a piece of music keeps their brains sharp. This is a unique class in that students have the chance to perform Broadway style dance combinations from their living rooms!
Students should be in a space where they have room to move (seated with headphones is not advisable for this class!). Students should also wear sensible footwear (no open toe shoes or heels). Barefoot or socked feet are welcome! The following is OPTIONAL: If the student chooses, they may have costume pieces/props that are in the style of Wicked to put on for our final performance in the last five minutes of class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
