Creating Dance with Life Forms: A Curriculum Guide for Teaching Computer-Based Dance and Choreography to Students with and without Disabilities [and Computer Diskettes, CD-ROM, and Videotapes].
Rose, Alice; Chow, Trina; Johnson, Neesa; Lucas, Warren
This guide presents materials for a computer-based college-level dance and choreography course appropriate for the inclusion of students with disabilities as well as a collection of dance games appropriate for other school and recreational environments which include individuals at various ages, and academic, developmental, and computer skill levels. The program is intended to be used with the choreographic software animation and notation program, "Life Forms" (not included in this package), which allows manipulation of wire-frame graphic figures in space and time using libraries of dance positions to create individual postures and stances. Following general introductory information and instructions on installing the program, the college curriculum guide presents detailed instructions for 24 classroom sessions. Session guidelines typically include: key terminology, one or more learning objectives, and specific learning activities using the computer program. The section on dance games presents instructions for 14 sessions also organized into content terminology, objectives, and activities. Also included are 22 handout masters. (DB)
