Find Your Inspiration

Project Description

This teacher guide includes step by step instructions to encourage the use of "inspiration objects" as catalysts for simple choreography. Students will select items from their daily lives and use those objects as inspiration for a movement phrase or short dance.  The guide includes reflection questions and extension ideas to allow teachers to use this activity at various levels.
