Physical Education KS2: The 'stop and go' move from street dance
Lizzie provides a breakdown of the 'stop and go' move used in locking for street dance.
Lizzie demonstrates the 'stop and go' slowly, giving teaching points throughout with a focus on rising on the balls of the feet on the atlas (or strong man) pose – the stop position.
The music is added and she demonstrates the movement, repeating it four times to the beat.
This clip is from the BBC series, Street Dance Masterclass.
The movement can be broken down and incorporated into any dance piece to demonstrate locking.
It's a short but useful linking move which could be demonstrated in question and answer phrasing by pairs of pupils.
Exploring the art of street dance, this series will be relevant for teaching physical education and dance at primary level.
