Luv2groove™ (L2G) gets thousands of students moving and grooving every year ranging from kindergarten to grade 12!
It is a program designed to bring dance to your school.
Luv2Groove™ is highly interactive and energetic! Our goal is for students and teachers to see dance as fun and not something scary or something that has to be perfect.
All our workshops/dance units focus on educating the students and teachers about the elements of dance including, body, space, time, energy and relationship. We pride ourselves by meeting the expectations outlined in the Ontario Arts Curriculum through movement activities and exercises that gets students exploring different ways of moving and building their own movement vocabulary.
More importantly, making sure every child feels successful throughout our sessions and providing teachers with easy tools and techniques that they can use in their own classrooms!
Each Session Includes:
Students will learn a series of dance steps through a dynamic warm-up and follow along grooves.
Students will explore movement / inquiry based activities that link directly to the Ontario Arts Curriculum expectations (i.e., mirroring, flocking, call and response).
Students will learn a series of dance moves that built into a dance routine that they can successfully perform.
Lastly, students will have the opportunity to develop their own movement vocabulary while moving freely without limitations through improvisation techniques we provide.
Dance is about expressing one self through movement, it is “a physical and non-verbal medium for learning about the self and the world” (OAC, pg.15). Dance is about the whole body and how it moves through space. It’s not about duplicating moves or a learning a “routine”, but allowing students to discover their inner groove, by moving their OWN way and celebrating the fact that everyBODY can dance!
