Dancing With Props
Students will learn to use move a prop by moving their bodies. This activity encourages students to focus on balance, a variety of body movements, and making the prop central to their movements.
- a variety of props: scarves, balls, string, hula hoops, pylons, batons, sticks, streamers, flags, rings, bean bags...
- Allow students to freely experiments with the variety of movements that are needed to make the variety of props move. Explore one prop at a time. If the number of props are limited, pair students up.
- After a while, ask students to pick a prop that they liked the best and create some sort of movement presentation with that prop.
- If students would like, allow them to present the movements to the rest of the class.
