Dance in the Virtual World: Compositional Tools and Techniques for Creative-Based Movement Work

CODE Workshop

March 18th, 2021 4 - 5:15 PM

Teaching Dance virtually may seem like a wild idea, especially when students are not comfortable turning their cameras on in class. This is exactly what Sheri thought when her virtual school schedule was all Dance. However, once the initial shock wore off, the creativity and excitement started to flow! 

In this workshop, Sheri will share some of the experiences, tools, and tips she developed this year while teaching Dance in the Toronto District School Board’s Virtual Secondary School. Her classes focus mainly on the individual creative process using a variety of compositional tools and techniques to create movement. She will actively lead participants through a few compositional experiences, share the structure of her daily virtual classes, and talk about creative assignment ideas that have been successful in this virtual world. These techniques can also be used in the non-virtual world, in Drama classes, and also can be adapted for intermediate grades. Come prepared to create and move!
