Physical Education KS2: Incorporating grooves into a street dance performance
Street dance crew Wiked perform on the CBBC show Alesha's Street Dance Stars.
The performance starts with a tight group formation, some locking and freestyle, and a tight unison first section; the second half demonstrates use of levels and formations, including floorwork.
The group incorporate locking, popping, tutting and old skool throughout but focus on street dance grooves like 'The Dougie' and 'SD bounce.'
This clip is from the series Street Dance Masterclass.
This clip can be used as a reference when discussing how to evaluate a performance.
Teachers can use the clip to show different actions, space, dynamics and relationships within a dance piece.
They could ask groups to look at the performance and identify changes in levels, use of space, change in directions, costumes, music etc.
It might also be used to form a theme based performance on social dances and why we do them in society.
This clip will be relevant for teaching Physical Education or Dance at Key Stage 2 or Second Year in Scotland.
