Product Description

The Dance Off (Part 1)
Print and laminate each of the “Dance Pattern Wall Cards”. Tape the cards around the walls to your gym. Divide your students into small groups (4 or so students per group). Give a smart device (with a downloaded QR Code App reader on the device already) to each group to use as well as a “Dance Pattern Checklist” (page 28 of this bundle). Allow groups to choose which “Dance Pattern Wall Card” they want to go over to. The group will scan the QR code on that wall card to reveal the animated GIF of what 8 count dance pattern they will learn together. After practicing the pattern together for a few minutes, they can choose to either perform it, for you as the teacher or another group without a mistake in order to check it off on their “Dance Pattern Checklist.” Encourage the groups to try and check off all 25 of the dance patterns!

The Dance Off (Part 2)
After giving your students enough time to work through Part 1 of The Dance Off, have your students begin to create their own dance routines by combining a few of the individual 8 count dance patterns they have already learned. Print out one “Create Your Routine” sheet per group for them to fill out. After the group has decided the patterns they will use and their order, the groups can begin practicing their routine to the music. After all the groups have practiced their routine enough, its time for The Dance Off where the groups can perform their routine for you as the teacher or other groups as the culminating activity!

**You/your students must have access to a few smart devices (enough for 1 per group) for this activity to be used as described.
