The Elements of Dance are the foundational concepts and vocabulary that help performing arts students and observers develop movement skills and understand dance choreography as an artistic practice. Using Walker commissioned and presented artists, this Art Collector Set discusses each of the five elements:

Body     Energy     Action     Space     Time     

Teachers and teaching artists may use this set as part of their classes, students may also use it as an independent study, and performing arts patrons and observers may use this to further develop their own vocabulary when discussing dance performance. Furthermore, any registered user of ArtsConnectEd may duplicate this Set to make a customizable copy, conveniently repurposing the icons and text to focus on different dance works, dancers or choreographers, or dance styles or histories.

The Elements of Dance Sets have been created through a partnership of Walker Art Center and Perpich Center for Arts Education using frameworks and tools developed by Diane Aldis for Perpich professional development and outreach programs.
