Dance About Anything by Helene Scheff
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is a useful resource for physical education and dance teachers. Seven easy-to-follow student tasks help to summarise the dance making process, from choosing a topic, solving movement problems and creating movement phrases through to designing, revising and finally performing a completed dance. Worksheets help students to get involved in the process by encouraging them to make their own choices, do research on their selected dance topics and work together as a group towards a finished piece. This work provides teachers with hands-on tools, innovative ideas, and step-by-step procedures to follow when producing a student dance project.
