Creating Partner Dances


Practical, hands-on, and created for teachers – this video gives you concrete skills and activities you can use to facilitate dance explorations with your students.



This video, led by dancer/choreographer/teacher Jen Johnson, includes invigorating and enriching warm ups which scaffold together to build an understanding of the basic elements of dance and creative movement. Through the introduction of specific strategies, Jen leads the students in an exploration of creative dance. Watch as the students integrate their thoughts and ideas about friendship into partner dances. The culminating friendship dances illustrate how bringing creative movement to your students can be a fun, meaningful and effective form of self-expression.
