Technical Steps & Exercises based on requirements from SQA

By Lisa Johnston

Demonstrations of Technical Steps (Jazz and Contemporary). This resource is excellent for teachers who are new to the subject. Listening to their feedback, there was frustration regarding unreliable resources online. Members struggled to recognise whether steps were demonstrated right or wrong. This resource breaks down individual steps, making it easier to incorporate these steps into their class practice.

Technical exercises to use in dance class (Jazz and Contemporary). This resource is used to enhance teachers’ knowledge and understanding of applying set steps into a combination to develop young people’s technique. It demonstrates exercises that you may want to use in class. The exercises are basic enough for teachers to be able to follow if they are new to the subject. Exercises can be differentiated in class for more able learners to ensure the needs of all learners are met.
