Here is a story about a dance class for high-school students that include writing critiques:<P> <A HREF="http://www.contracostatimes.com/news/education/stories/37sun17_20000517.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.contracostatimes.com/news/education/stories/37sun17_20000517.htm</A>

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.

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.
