School physical activity dance lesson – Students learn about dancing the OPPOSITES

(Black Horse and the Cherry Tree) This video shows Maggie teaching the "OPPOSITES". Students learn to express spontaneous movements inspired by opposing concepts like stiff/loose, big/small, high/low, slow/fast, heavy/light, happy/sad, front/back. Of course you can use any kind of opposite or let the students create their own opposite pairs before you start the dance. The above concepts have proven to be great inspiration tools.
