Energy 3.1

  • 0:03 - 0:07
    In this lesson, we did two variations
    of the Brain Dance as a warm-up.
  • 0:07 - 0:09
    The first variation
    was seated on the floor
  • 0:09 - 0:11
    and that presented the students
    with some challenges
  • 0:11 - 0:13
    about how they can move
    through those patterns
  • 0:13 - 0:15
    while remaining on a low level.
  • 0:15 - 0:17
    (teacher) And two, up.
  • 0:18 - 0:20
    And two.
  • 0:20 - 0:21
    Good.
  • 0:21 - 0:23
    Now, what was the next one?
    Anyone remember?
  • 0:23 - 0:24
    - Yes, Khalil?
    - Cut the body in half.
  • 0:24 - 0:26
    Cut your body in half,
    that's right, Khalil, awesome.
  • 0:26 - 0:28
    Whoosh.
  • 0:28 - 0:30
    Just [inaudible]. Whoosh.
  • 0:30 - 0:31
    Stretch, make it as big as you can.
  • 0:31 - 0:33
    You can make sound effects like Jaleel.
  • 0:33 - 0:35
    - Do you remember the last one, Judy?
    - Spinning.
  • 0:35 - 0:37
    - Spinning.
    - We're going to spin on our bums.
  • 0:37 - 0:39
    Six spins, round and round and round.
  • 0:39 - 0:40
    (children) Whee!
  • 0:40 - 0:42
    And then the second variation
    we did is a mirroring activity
  • 0:42 - 0:45
    where one student was the leader
    for one movement pattern
  • 0:45 - 0:48
    and the next student was the leader
    for the next movement pattern,
  • 0:48 - 0:52
    and they had to try to remain in sync
    with their partner as much as possible.
  • 0:52 - 0:56
    Continue with the mirroring activity,
    where one student is the leader
  • 0:56 - 0:59
    and the other student is facing them
    and trying to mirror their movements
  • 0:59 - 1:00
    as accurately as possible.
  • 1:00 - 1:02
    We're going to keep doing
    a little more mirroring,
  • 1:02 - 1:04
    but this time you're going
    to listen to the music, okay?
  • 1:04 - 1:07
    So, you're going to move sharply
    when the music is sharp
  • 1:07 - 1:11
    and you're going to move smoothly
    when the music is smooth, okay?
  • 1:11 - 1:13
    But at the same time, you're going to try
    to mirror your partner.
  • 1:13 - 1:15
    So, Ava is going to stand up.
  • 1:15 - 1:18
    So, Ava is going to do
    something smooth for me.
  • 1:19 - 1:22
    And I'm going to try to copy it as closely
    as I can, so that if I'm looking at it,
  • 1:22 - 1:27
    it's really hard to tell who the leader is
    and who the follower is, right?
  • 1:27 - 1:30
    Encourage students to begin using
    slow and simple movements
  • 1:30 - 1:33
    so that their partner
    has the best chance at success.
  • 1:33 - 1:35
    As partners become better
    at this activity,
  • 1:35 - 1:37
    their movements can become faster
    and more complex.
  • 1:37 - 1:38
    ♪ (music) ♪
  • 1:38 - 1:40
    So just smooth.
  • 1:40 - 1:42
    If it's smooth, then you move smoothly.
  • 1:44 - 1:45
    Now, smooth.
  • 1:45 - 1:47
    Think about tai chi, maybe.
  • 1:47 - 1:49
    Tai chi is much slower.
  • 1:49 - 1:51
    ♪ (music) ♪
  • 1:52 - 1:54
    Ooh, I like that, [Trace], that's nice.
  • 1:55 - 1:58
    Good, and whoever is the leader
    is going to change pretty soon.
  • 1:58 - 1:59
    Nice, Yannis.
  • 1:59 - 2:02
    Think about that you don't have to do
    everything standing up,
  • 2:02 - 2:04
    you can crouch down lower to the ground.
  • 2:04 - 2:06
    You can take a leg back.
  • 2:06 - 2:09
    Oh, this is really nice, Mirabelle
    and [inaudible].
  • 2:09 - 2:11
    Good, now you're going to move sharp.
  • 2:11 - 2:13
    Sharp! Sharp!
  • 2:13 - 2:15
    So, whoever is the boss now
    is going to move sharply.
  • 2:15 - 2:17
    Sharp, sharp, very nice, you two.
  • 2:17 - 2:19
    Can you do that with your legs?
  • 2:19 - 2:22
    Highlight the work of pairs
    who were moving very successfully
  • 2:22 - 2:23
    in the mirroring relationship
  • 2:23 - 2:26
    or whose movement
    was very interesting and unusual
  • 2:26 - 2:28
    and share that with the class.
  • 2:28 - 2:29
    I'm going to turn the music back on
  • 2:29 - 2:32
    and Alya and Eliana are going
    to just quickly show
  • 2:32 - 2:34
    some of the sharp stuff they were doing.
  • 2:34 - 2:36
    ♪ (music) ♪
  • 2:38 - 2:40
    Good, that was really great.
  • 2:40 - 2:43
    I really like that
    because they were using--
  • 2:43 - 2:45
    a lot of you were using your whole arm,
  • 2:45 - 2:46
    which was also really good,
  • 2:46 - 2:49
    but they were getting into using
    their fingers and their wrists.
  • 2:49 - 2:52
    Highlight a pair who learned
    that it was easier to move together
  • 2:52 - 2:54
    when there was a pattern
    to their movement.
  • 2:54 - 2:57
    So, for instance, when the leader did
    one movement four times
  • 2:57 - 2:59
    and then another movement four times,
  • 2:59 - 3:02
    it was easier for that partner
    to mirror that movement accurately.
