Here is a list of some of the technical vocabulary we have been using:

angular, softly, aggressively, sadly, fluidly, spiked, level, direction, shape, sudden, sustained, flowing, call and response, flowing, jerky, contact, separate, shapes, improvisation, quick, curved, breathe, shake, turn, gesture, stillness, travel, canon, unison, low, middle, high, levels, solo, duet, trio, sequence, slow, transition, teamwork, practice, tense, relax, performance, props, timing, space, focus, communication, energy, prepare, choreograph, jump, lunge, balance, arch

Can you comment on the dances using some of this vocabulary?

Well done everyone, you performed these dances so well.
