What I Learned from the Flamingo: Dance of the Animals

How does a flamingo move differently from an elephant? How does a mouse move differently from a lion? Students are introduced to the dynamics and qualities of movement through the imitation of different animals. Students watch choreography from the “Flamingo” dance, and learn to describe the movement in terms of shape, time, and dynamics. Everyone makes up their own dance based on animals being studied in the classroom.
