(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.
