PYP Dance

Dance is an integral part of many cultures. Dance plays an important role in society as it brings people and communities together. As an art form, dance explores how we express ourselves through movement. To understand and respond to dance, students need to understand how dance is used in cultural, ritual and social contexts. Students need opportunities to view a wide variety of dance from various sources, such as live performance, peer choreography, guest dance artists, and recordings.

Creating dance involves inquiring into the rhythm of music, the natural rhythms of our bodies and the environment around us.
(Arts Scope and Sequence)

The Dance facilitators at FLAG offer students experiences that provoke and inspire them to respond to a variety of performances and eventually create their own music or generate and record sounds and words, choreograph movements, design lighting etc.

By providing a safe environment, we provide opportunities for students to express and engage themselves fully with their minds and bodies.
