First-grade students in dance class explore their expanding world as they create, interpret, and replicate steps, movement patterns, shapes, rhythms, and dances inspired by a variety of stories, songs, ideas, cultures, manipulatives, images, creative play, and technologies. Through structured and unstructured movement, students stretch their imaginations, strengthen their bodies, and learn to make choices in a risk-free environment. Instruction facilitates their acquisition of knowledge and skills required to self-express, create with artistic intent, and infuse concepts from various academic content areas and cultural origins.
