I have created an ocean dance video lesson to accompany my book I Can Make a Water Dance. This book introduces the water cycle and ideas for creating lessons on all the phases of water.
This video is intended to support all teachers in creating a creative dance lesson, especially for the non-dance teacher in the classroom. I have gotten wonderful feedback from teachers ranging from 5th grade science, dance therapists, special education, pre-K, arts organization outreach programs, to college dance education professors.
The lesson is twelve minutes long. It includes observation of ocean footage and art, a warmup, movement exploration, and culminates with a time for dance creation with drum accompaniment.
The video is posted on YouTube . Use it freely and pass it along to anyone who could use it.
