Chance Dance: An Experience in Language and Dance.
Romatowski, Jane A.; Mayes, Alvin
"Chance Dance" is a success-oriented learning technique which gives students an opportunity to explore a word or a concept through oral expression, dance, and creative writing. This is done by first eliciting from the group all possible verbal associations for a selected word or concept and then, in smaller groups, choreographing some of these verbal associations for presentation within a dance sequence for the whole group. The dance sequence is followed by an in-depth discussion, a creative writing opportunity, and sharing of the individual's writing with the whole group. (JM)
