1
Relationships in Space Directions

2
Spatial Aspects This is where the action occurs There is your own personal space – the bubble around you & where you can reach to There is the general space – the areas outside of your bubble & you have to move into, through, around & across

3
Spatial Levels There are 3 spatial levels High (Jump, stand, tip toe or reach up) Medium (Lunge, stand on flat feet, kneel) Low/Deep (Kneel, sit, lie, roll or slide)

4
Spatial Levels There are 3 spatial levels High (Jump, stand, tip toe or reach up) Medium (Lunge, stand on flat feet, kneel) Low/Deep (Kneel, sit, lie, roll or slide) Low

5
Spatial Levels There are 3 spatial levels High (Jump, stand, tip toe or reach up) Medium (Lunge, stand on flat feet, kneel) Low/Deep (Kneel, sit, lie, roll or slide) Low Medium

6
Spatial Levels There are 3 spatial levels High (Jump, stand, tip toe or reach up) Medium (Lunge, stand on flat feet, kneel) Low/Deep (Kneel, sit, lie, roll or slide) Low Medium High

7
Directions – Describing Lines Three dimensional forms are defined by Height Width Breadth A diagonal is defined in relation to a three- dimensional solid: A Cube Which has 6 sides & 8 corners

8
Directions There are 6 single directions High (H) Deep (D) To the Right (R) To the Left (L) Forwards (F) Backwards (B)

9
Directions There are 6 single directions High (H) Deep (D) To the Right (R) To the Left (L) Forwards (F) Backwards (B) High Deep Left Right Forwards Backwards

10
Planes There are three PLANES we can move in With 12 two-dimensional directions

11
Planes There are three PLANES we can move in With 12 two-dimensional directions HR DR HL DL Spatial DOOR plane Movements from side to side Reaching high & low

12
Planes There are three PLANES we can move in With 12 two-dimensional directions Spatial TABLE plane Movements reaching forwards & backwards At waist height, to left & right FL BL FR BL

13
Planes There are three PLANES we can move in With 12 two-dimensional directions Spatial WHEEL plane Movements reaching forwards & backwards With change of level – no sideways action BH FH FD BD

14
Planes There are three PLANES we can move in With 12 two-dimensional directions HR DR HL DL Spatial DOOR plane Movements from side to side Reaching high & low Spatial TABLE plane Movements reaching forwards & backwards At waist height, to left & right FL BL FR BL Spatial WHEEL plane Movements reaching forwards & backwards With change of level – no sideways action BH FH FD BD

15
The Three Planes Connect front to back through the centre The diagonals shown are on three planes Door Plane Table Plane Wheel Plane

16
Diagonals There are also 3-D directions (as opposed to 2-D planes) With 8 diagonal directions To reach HRF the gesture goes High Forwards To the Right

17
Diagonals There are also 3-D directions (as opposed to 2-D planes) With 8 diagonal directions To reach HRF the gesture goes High Forwards To the Right

18
Diagonals There are also 3-D directions (as opposed to 2-D planes) With 8 diagonal directions To reach HRF the gesture goes High Forwards To the Right

19
Diagonals There are also 3-D directions (as opposed to 2-D planes) With 8 diagonal directions To reach HRF the gesture goes High Forwards To the Right

20
Diagonals There are also 3-D directions (as opposed to 2-D planes) With 8 diagonal directions To reach HRF the gesture goes High Forwards To the Right

21
Pathways Travel on different pathways Zig-Zag Curved Diagonal Wavey Labelled from the point of view of the dancer on the stage Can be drawn by marking an “O” for the origin & “X” for the finish

22
Stage Chart – Stage Areas Upstage Downstage Downstage Left DSL Stage Left SL Upstage Left UL Centre C Downstage Right DR Stage Right SR Upstage Right USR

23
Size of Movements Tiny (wagging finger) Medium-sized (Stretching arm forwards & making large gesture with finger) Large-sized (Taking a step up & forwards, reaching forwards with both arms and wagging both fingers in unison Very large (Stepping into a high hop, taking both arms forwards & high, wagging fingers & landing in a balance or lunge)

24
Shape of Movements The body can be rounded Stretched thin Twisted Stretched wide

25
Gestures Can be made with the arms & legs & can be Linear Curved Angular Above, below, infront, behind, or to the side of the body Curled & rounded

26
Space Vocabulary Page 62 of GCSE Dance by Pam Howard A-Z listing of spatial words
