Working with Ms Hilary is always a treat, and this virtual visit was no exception. Our focus was introducing the Juilliard's ‘Construct a Dance’ project.
We began exploring the idea of unison, of moving through space but with a sense of togetherness and an awareness of our fellow dancers. Then came the poses, the Juilliard have created a series of dance pictures for students to emulate.
These poses require engagement of the core muscles, focus and balance. After learning the poses our students worked in groups to develop their own transitional movements.
We are so lucky that Ms Hilary is going to make a virtual return next semester to see where we are with our Construct a Dance pieces, and to also guide our students in the next stage of creating this whole school project.
