Tell Us a Story: Pantomime in Dance
In nearly all classical forms of dance there is no dialogue. To convey a story a dancer uses pantomime for exposition. Pantomime helps convey character, and every gesture is important in the telling of the story. In this activity, students will learn basic mime vocabulary used in all classical ballet storytelling, and use this new language to create their own tales.
