Diane Amans Dance Playlist



 

A Playlist for Participatory Dance in Community Settings

 

My aim, in every dance session, is to engage people in enjoyable dance activities. I start in a fairly structured way and lead the group gently to more open-ended tasks. Whatever the age group of participants and whatever the context of my work – whether it is a one-off taster session, a regular weekly group or a performance project – I try to establish a playful quality and a sense that there is no wrong way of responding.

 

This varied playlist includes music I have used for:

  • warm up activities
  • movement development
  • starting points for choreography
  • closures/ ending a session
