Movement and Dance Piece by Piece

Pera Kids
Ages 10-12

How would you like to create a dancing choreography along with hip-hop? Everyone in the family can join in. Write movements and limbs on pieces of paper, like hand-right, leg-left, shoulder-left, knee-right, and mix them in a bowl. Then, have every player draw 10 pieces and create their dance moves using the movements as a guide. Try practicing your moves slowly with the music at first, and then add them together to create your own dance. If you wish to film your dance and share it online, don’t forget to use the #PeraLearning hashtag!
