Dance a Doodle
To keep the creativity flowing through ‘lockdown’, Miss Freeman has been inviting her Lower School Dance Club members to express themselves through art and movement.
Starting by creating a doodle – drawing shapes, patterns, squiggles and swirls, pupils were then asked to notice what shapes emerged and consider how these might be transferred into movement; a straight line could be a slide or walk, a swirl could be a slow spiralling turn or a dot a jump. Pupils were then encouraged to put movements together in a sequence and think about accompanying music or a soundtrack to compliment the rhythm and narrative emerging. The results were some amazing performances, captured by pupils on video and shared with the group.
Miss Freeman says “It has been so uplifting to see the dances the group have created during their Downtime Sessions. Dance is a wonderful way of having fun, enjoying yourself and being expressive. Well done girls!”
