Recap
Pupils practise and refine their dance so far, trying to improve the aspects identified last lesson.
(Accuracy/Fluency)


          Track 17 – PESS Approach to Teaching Dance – KS2 Audio CD.
Explore
Explain that today we are going to create the second verse. The focus for the second verse is ‘Robotic body-
popping’ that is performed mainly standing up. Watch the body-popping video clip of Tobias Mead from
Britain’s Got Talent 2010 Audition Week 1. Pupils explore their own body-popping moves. Pupils work in
fours preferably with pupils other than those they have worked with so far to explore different body popping
moves. Explain that whatever moves they perform they must be able to move easily from it back to the
chorus.
Create
Create a ’Body-popping’ phrase that lasts for at least 16 counts of the music. Agree with the class how many
counts they will have for this section. (Prob end up being 32= 4x8)
Intervene
Highlight high quality actions and encourage imaginative/effective use of direction, and spatial arrangement.
Perform
Perform your ’Body-popping’ phrase to another group and receive feedback. Then perform your ‘Start and
Verse 1 followed by your ‘Chorus’ phrase followed by your moon walk/robot walk to your ‘body popping’
phrase followed by your ‘Chorus’ phrase. Teacher videos whole class.
Evaluate
Teacher-led evaluation: watch the video: What were the ‘Wow’ factors? Why were they ‘Wow’ factors for
you? Which choreographic devices (direction/spatial arrangements) did you use? Identify aspects you want to
improve for next week.
