standards of etiquette and manners, as well.

Once Upon A Time Storytelling Badge :

A D4L teaching artist will guide your troop into the world of fairy tales, specifically using a Native American legend that is strangely similar to another well-known fairy tale. By looking at the cross-cultural
connections, we learn about universal human themes that are found in many fairy tales. By the end, your troupe will be creating their own fairy tales and performing them for each other!

Dancer Badge Program includes:
• Step 1: Warm up with a cardio routine that incorporates walking, running, jumping, skipping,
hopping, leaping, sliding, bending, lifting, rolling, twisting, and turning.
• Stretching and partner/small group work, using the body to make the shapes of alphabet letters.
• Step 2: A short video presentation with examples of traditional cultural dances from around the world. Students will take part in a practical demonstration and learn of some fundamental movements and concepts from these dance forms.
• Structured group improvisation exercises that teach groups of dancers how to communicate movements to one another without words.
• Step 3: Proper posture and carriage while standing and walking. Practice of curtsey and deep curtsey.
• Step 4: Performance tips, stage directions and dance composition principles. These are all tools that will assist Girl Scouts in creating their own original dances. This portion of class
will cover the concept of “motif and development”, angular and curved lines, asymmetrical and symmetrical shapes, floor pathways, musicality, and using dance as a medium of
communication/story telling. Brownie Girl Scouts will be given the tools to create their own original 3-minute dances.
• Step 5: Brownie Girl Scouts will finish creating their original 3-minute choreography on their own time and can present their finished work at their next troop meeting in order to complete their badge. Girl Scout troops have the additional option of scheduling an informal recital at Dance 4 Life Academy in order for participants to experience
the trill of presenting their own original dances in a performance setting for
their families and friends.
