10 Principles Method

Interact while dancing & create movements as a pair connected by rags • Dance exercises for teens

(Move Around) Add some toy to your group dancing games and see how creativity ensues! Because MUVE is a spontaneous dance exercise method we do not choreograph any movement patterns. Movements are created on the fly. Inherently, this type of dance does not lend itself to holding on to each others hands. Usually, when dancers "hold hands" they are very likely to restrict each others movement. Dancing closely with a partner, without restricting each other, is the skill we are learning here. Using towels or rags adds about 10 inches of distance between the partners hands, which in turn allows a variety of maneuvers. As the students explore the possibilities, they learn to be mind-full of each other and to cooperate. Leading and following is non-verbally negotiated between the couples.
