French Dance Unit Elements of Dance for Grades 5-8 - SYTYCD French Version
French Dance Unit - Teach the elements of dance effectively - in FRENCH! - in person OR remote - even if you don't have dance experience.
In response to popular request, this is a new French version of the best-selling "So You Think You Can Teach The Elements of Dance" dance unit. Please note that the example videos and teaching guides are in English, but all student-facing materials (discussion questions, worksheets) are provided in French. In addition to the original PDF format, a link is provided to download Google-friendly versions of the worksheets for use with online teaching.
Each lesson focuses on one of the six elements of dance, and features a specific dance style. The lessons include discussion questions, journaling worksheets, and a link to a video that teaches a basic element of that style, so that you can learn right alongside your students.
To make the lessons as accessible and as high interest to students as possible, I have used clips from the “So You Think You Can Dance” television show. As these videos display dance in a manner that is current and recognizable, it should help students to “buy in” more easily.
*NOTE*: This unit is designed to be applicable to multiple grades who may not have received quality dance instruction in the primary years. It approaches each element of dance in a generalized way, so that students with no prior knowledge will find it accessible. If you are looking to address the exact characteristics of the elements for each grade, simply adjust the direction of the discussion and the vocabulary used to suit the exact grade level you are teaching.
