Body Awareness and Fundamental Movement Skills

 

All dance begins with Body Awareness and Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) the everyday movements we make.
We talk about

  • non-locomotor movement – movement we make without moving from one place to another

  • locomotor movement – movements we make as we move from one place to another

 

You can’t assume that your students will know and be able to show you their parts of the body nor have an understanding of Fundamental Movement Skills.
Connect this learning with Health and Physical Education.
