STRUCTURES FOR DANCE

Every dance we choreograph will be made up of different sections.

The structure is the order we put the sections of our dance in.

There are four basic structures that we can use when choreographing dances

sections.The two sections are different from each other.

sections.The three sections are different from each

repeated.Section C is the middle section. It is not

repeated, but is the climax (high point) of the dance.

A B A C A D… - RondoIn this structure there is a section that is

always repeated (section A) possibly with developments.

In between this, there are different sections that provide a contrast to section A.

These can all be different, or some could be repeated, for emphasis.
