Physical Education KS2: Incorporating grooves into a street dance
Watch a street dance performance by Wiked, focusing on grooves.
The performance starts with a tight group formation, some locking and freestyle, and a tight unison first section. The second half of the performance 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 short film is from the BBC series, Street Dance Masterclass.
This clip can be used as a reference when discussing how to evaluate a performance.
You could use this video to show different actions, space, dynamics and relationships within a dance piece.
You could ask your pupils 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.
Exploring the art of street dance, this series will be relevant for teaching physical education and dance at primary level.
