In this activity, students watch the clip Leap of Faith and Episode 22: Flight of Fight Response from Series 1 of the award-winning Dance Academy children's television program.
Students then participate in a number of warm up and free form movement exercises which lead them to creating their own hip hop free form dance (i.e. improvisation).
In groups, students reflect on and discuss their responses to the activity, with a focus on their learning and enjoyment of other students' work.
This is a sample of work taken from the Dance Academy: Arts Education resource.
