All students can be successful!
We are using only the first 1minute and 14 seconds of the dance as this is a long enough stretch of music for the students to identify patterns of movement and to replace these movements with newly created ones of their own. As you can see in the YMCA Just Dance video below, all 4 dancers start the song in a freeze position then move into the dance with distinct patterns of movement. Our summative assessment task requires the students to create a number of specific dance moves of their own but to try their best to stay in time with the music. You can see the first 1 minute 14 seconds of the YMCA dance below. If you haven't used Just Dance with your students, you must give it a go!!
