Comparing Cultural Dances

This Comparing Cultural Dances lesson plan also includes:

All cultures express similar thoughts, feelings, and ideas. But, often times those things are expressed differently. Learners compare and contrast traditional dances from two cultures. They watch videos of each performance, stop to discuss body language and shape, and then reflect on what each dance is trying to convey. The lesson can use any two cultures but suggests the Hawaiian hula and Cambodian Aspara Dance. Note: The resource says Cambodian Aspara dance, most likely it is supposed to be the Cambodian Apsara dance.
