good article, azlan. <P>i've taught this kind of class in high schools and they're not easy - especially when the kids have no basic dance training background, and their image of dance comes only from video clips!<P>it's a challenge - put it THAT way! Image

We have a large dance program at my high school. We do two concerts a year and all the classes are very popular. I've learned a lot about choreography from taking it, since there aren't a lot of opprotunites for dancers to chreograph where I dance. A lot of expirenced dancers take it too because it's a good way to develop fundamentals and learn about ballet notation.

i'm fascinated, bea, that you're learning about notation...i assume that would be laban? tell us more! Image<P>also, we have a thread about notation here (i am trained as a benesh notator). it's at <A HREF="http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum8/HTML/000010.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum8/HTML/000010.html</A>

Our teacher is certified in Laban/ Bartenieff movement analysis. It's a facinating system. As far as notation goes, we will usually just take a barre in class and then our homework will be to go home and write it down.
