Move Like Water

Design a project to encourage your class to create movement with their body that symbolises water.

Do a Mexican wave every 30 minutes to re energise them for instance.

Choreograph something more in depth such as dancing different water sources… explore the energy they evoke and discover why different bodies of water have differing levels of attraction for each individual.

Perhaps you could select some of your favourite natural water sources: Niagara maybe with powerful water falls or one of the Great Lakes with a sense of expansiveness, a natural spring or a playful river such as the River Dart in the UK that runs through moorland with variable speeds and shifting direction.

Explore how more fluid movement increases their spatial awareness and balance.

A great exercise for the vestibular system and to develop proprioception.
