YouTube as a Teaching Tool

Print pagePDF page

Everyone knows about YouTube to see a kitten playing the piano but, what about as a teaching tool?  In my classroom, I use it all the time as a way for students to witness some great historical dances and icons from the field.  Here’s an idea: have the students watch a scene the New York City Ballet’s, Swan Lake and the Knicks last home game.  Just a few minutes of each, then try to create movement phrases based on what they witnessed.  Grab a partner and share ideas.
