Dancing in class

The Dutch dance company ‘Nederlands Dans Theater’ (NDT) requested an application to learn children in class about modern dance in a playful way. The basis is a selection of beautiful video fragments of dance pieces by the choreographers Crystal Pite, Johan Inger and Alexander Ekman. Four apps are now available: Cacti, suitable for students of grades 1 and 2, Parade for students of grades 3 and 4, Dreamplay for students of grades 5 and 6 and The Statement for students of grades 7 and 8. The apps have been developed for primary school teachers and can be requested free of charge for all primary schools and primary education organisations. The application is available through web browsers and is intended to be used in class on a ‘digiboard’. The apps are structured in themes, each with its own parts such as do, watch and play. School children get to work with dance videos, dance assignments, word games, or, for example, a debate with the whole class. They discuss what they see together, talk about the themes with each other, and are inspired to dance and invent dances themselves.
