Minute Masterclass Episode 50
Welcome to your one-minute masterclass. I’m Andrea Trench, founder of DiscoverDance. PATHWAYS is the fifth concept we explore in the DiscoverDance Program. When we explore the concept of PATHWAYS we continue to develop the vocabulary we started to build, while exploring the previous concepts. We discover how those movements can travel in STRAIGHT, CURVY, and ZIG ZAG PATHWAYS either on our spot or as we move from place to place. This assists in growing our creative thinking and problem solving skills.
Traveling through space, knowing there are different ways to get from one place to another, helps develop our spatial awareness as well…and is an important skill when navigating our dance formations. You can incorporate the concept of PATHWAYS into your classes with the song Follow, Follow Me by Denise Gagne. Line up like a train and lead your dancers through STRAIGHT, CURVY and ZIG ZAG PATHWAYS as you sing this simple song. For more information, visit DiscoverDance.com.
