Physical Education KS2: Street dance masterclass on house dance
Turbo, a judge on 'Alesha’s Street Dance Stars', teaches a street dance masterclass focusing on house dance with the help of dance group Masters of Movement.
Turbo gives a brief history of house dance followed by a demonstration.
The warm up is taught in a follow my leader style with clear teaching points, repetition and counts, throughout.
There are three sections; each section is broken down and repeated with teaching points, counts and music, giving visual and oral directions throughout.
Section one is jack and pas de bourree, section two is stomps, retreat, shuffle and tick-tack-toe and section three is skate, happy feet, dip n jack and jack in the box.
The three sections are put together and performed twice with a freestyle section by Masters of Movement.
Turbo then gives tips on how to develop the choreography by using canon and changing positions in a group or duet.
This clip is from the series Street Dance Masterclass.
This clip can be used as an introduction to street dance for the specialist and non-specialist teacher.
It can also be used in the classroom as a follow my leader style session.
The teacher could prepare by splitting the sections into weeks for example:
Week 1 – warm up Week 2 – warm up and section 1 Week 3 warm up and section 2 Week 4 warm up and section 3 Week 5 – warm up and put it all together Week 6 – try canon and/ or change of positions.
This clip could also be used as a research tool for older groups when looking at different street dance styles.
This clip will be relevant for teaching Physical Education or Dance at Key Stage 2 or Second Year in Scotland.
