NAE - Juilliard Collaboration Dance Project Construct-a-Dance 2021

In collaboration with the Juilliard School, I have led my Prague British International School dance students through the Juilliard Dance project Construct a Dance.

I let my students watch a video with the instructions and I distributed the Juilliard Dance Stick figures for them to create their own memorable dance pieces. Students were able to refine their pieces by for example adjusting the scale, level and dynamics of the movements. I encouraged my students to modify transitions and add turns and jumps to unlock their creativity.

The project’s aim was for my students to fully express themselves and claim ownership for their performances through dance. Due to the government restrictions, some students were at school and some at home. The performances have been put together creating one big performance. Have a look at their outstanding pieces in this video.

 

My students and I were awarded for our participation in this project with a Certificate of Completion by Juilliard K12 Programs and Initiatives and Nord Anglia Education.
