- Identify how it feels to perform the same movement fast and slow.
- Create a connected shape, improvise while disconnected, and finish back in original connected shape.
- Perform improvised movement based on a famous painting.
- Identify how the movement changes if an element is performed differently, such as taking the movement from a high level to a low level.
- Create three movements and develop a symbol to go with each (such as ⟲ for turn).
