Physical Education KS2: The 'floor slide to resurrection' moves used in house dance

Turbo provides a breakdown of the 'floor slide to resurrection' moves used in house dance.

He demonstrates the move slowly with clear directions focusing on how to lower yourself down to the floor and then immediately push your body back up from a sitting position.

Music is then added and the movement is performed a further four times.

This clip is from the BBC series, Street Dance Masterclass.

Teacher Notes

The movement can be broken down and incorporated into any dance piece, for floorwork or to act as a transition between sequences.

Hips must lead the way on the "resurrection" back up.

This move demands strength in the arms for the first part and strength in the arms, legs and back for pushing up.

Curriculum Notes

Exploring the art of street dance, this series will be relevant for teaching physical education and dance at primary level.
