  2. 2. MC What is dance?Dance is a form of art that shows expressions and is really involved with movement. Dance is normally for fun and entertainment.

  4. 4. AA SpaceSpacial awareness is very importanttowards dance. You have to be able tomanage your space so the audience is ableto see you, to be aware on where you arewhile dancing. If you’re dancing with apartner, you have to make sure you neverbump into each other, unless if you need todo that on purpose. The audience will alsobe curious whether you stay in one spot todance or move around the stage. 4
  5. 5. AL EnergyYou need energy while dancing to makeyour performance look enthusiastic. Makesure you DO NOT practice too muchbefore your performance, because you’llget too tired. As a result, yourperformance will not look natural andyour movements will be sloppy. 5
  6. 6. mC DynamicsThe dynamics of dance are also equallyimportant to make a good dance. Dynamicsin music mean loud and soft, but in dancethey mean how you move, the style you movein. So for example dynamics would be if youmove freely or you’re in a war and you’removing very tensely and worryingly. 6

  8. 8. AL Body MovementsThe body moves while dancing. It does handmovements, actions, leg movements, etc. toexpress feelings and sometimes tells astory. 8
  9. 9. mC Time & ContrastYou have to make sure you have propertiming while dancing. This is because youwon’t make your audience really bored. Youalso need to be in rhythm with the music ifyou’re dancing with music. Speed in yourmovements also matters because you shouldhave a bit of contrast in your dance -moving slower or faster. 9
  10. 10. aa EmotionsMany dances have a purpose of showingemotions. The emotions show what feelingsyou have, which is pretty obvious. You don’tspeak in dance though, show showing youremotions during your dance movements isvital. 10
  11. 11. al BalanceYou need to have good balance when you’redancing. This is because you don’t want toembarrass yourself in front your audience bytripping and falling all over the place. 11
