“The Dance Elements” Giant Wall Charts


The elements of dance are essential to literacy in all aspects of dance (as a dancer, choreographer, critic, and historian). NCAS standards promote the dance elements as dance’s primary movement language. Each chart clarifies the key dance elements in the five main categories:   1) Body, 2) Space, 3) Time, 4) Energy, and 5) Relationship (BSTER). Increase enduring understanding of dance as a movement-based art with this conceptual language.

The Dance Elements are the most important vocabulary in educational dance. Use for all ages.
