Crew Resource: Let’s Dance!

Learning Target

I can learn a new dance that I will perform with my Crew.

Overview of the Activity

Dance provides people of all ages and from all corners of the world an opportunity to express themselves. Dance can evoke the whole range of human emotions, tell stories, and capture the spirit of a people in a moment. Students can submit ideas (or choose from below). Then, as a Crew, generate criteria to choose, vote on which dance, establish a practice schedule, decide on a date to perform together, and how to stay accountable to the practice schedule.



Suggested Questions

Generate Ideas 
  • What criteria should we use to choose a dance?
  • What is going well? What is challenging?
  • Do we need to change/adapt our schedule or accountability structure?
  • What obstacles did you face and how did you overcome them?
  • What was enjoyable about learning this dance?
  • What did you learn about yourself/others through this process?


  • Multi-day activity 
  • Ensure accessibility for all physical abilities
  • Decide if/what behind-the-scenes roles are needed for the final performance (eg. video editing, lyrics, create props, etc.)
  • Record group practice and final performance! 

Considerations for:

Older students

  • Record progress in a journal (digital or physical) with photos or drawings

Younger students

  • Assign parts of the dance

Staff Crew

  • Assign parts of the dance
  • Encourage family/pet participation
  • Opt to record instead of perform, share on social media


  • Consider if opting out of dance to do behind-the-scenes work makes sense for your Crew
