PK: 
a. Respond using movement elements and skills to a series of sensory stimuli (e.g. music/sound, visual, tactile). b. Find different ways to do several basic locomotor and non-locomotor movements.
K: 
a. Respond using movement elements and skills to a series of sensory stimuli (e.g music/sound, text, objects/props, images, symbols, observed dance though video or live performance). b. Explore movement ideas and the different ways to vary locomotor and non-locomotor movements by changing at least on of the elements of dance.
1: 
a. Explore movement elements and skills inspired by a variety of stimuli (e.g. music/sound, text, objects/props, images, symbols, observed dance through video or live performance) and identify the source. b. Explore a variety of locomotor and non-locomotor movements by experimenting with the elements of dance in response to the environment and a range of themes.
2: 
a. Explore movement elements and skills inspired by a variety of stimuli (e.g. music/sound, text, objects/props, images, symbols, observed dance, own experiences) and suggest additional sources for movement ideas. b. Combine a variety of movements into short phrases while manipulating the elements of dance.
3: 
a. Experiment with a variety of self-identified stimuli (e.g. music/sound, text, objects/props, images, notation, dance exemplars) for creating movement. b. Explore a given movement problem through improvisation with the elements of dance. Select, demonstrate, and describe a solution using accurate language.
4: 
a. Identify ideas for choreography, generated from a variety of stimuli (for example, music/sound, text, objects/props, images, notation, dance exemplars, own ideas and experiences). b. Create multiple solutions to given movement problems to develop choreographic material by manipulating the elements of dance. Describe the solutions using accurate language.
5: 
a. Build content for choreography using a variety of stimuli (e.g. music/sound, dance exemplars, literary forms, notation, ideas and images, own experiences, objects/props, natural phenomena, world news and social issues). b. Construct and solve multiple movement problems by using the elements of dance to develop choreographic content. Describe the process of creation and the solutions, using genre-specific vocabulary when appropriate.
6: 
a. Relate similar or contrasting ideas to develop choreography using a variety of stimuli (e.g. music/sound, dance exemplars, literary forms, notation, ideas and images, personal experiences/recall, world news, or social issues). b. Explore the elements of dance in various movement vocabularies to convey ideas through choreography. Describe the connection between choreography and the ideas conveyed, using genre-specific vocabulary when appropriate.
7: 
a. Compare a variety of stimuli (e.g. music/sound, dance exemplars, literary forms, notation, natural phenomena, personal experiences/recall, world news, or social issues) and make selections to expand movement vocabulary and artistic expression for choreography. b. Explore the elements of dance in various movement vocabularies to express an artistic intent in choreography. Explain and discuss the choices made using genre-specific dance terminology.
8: 
a. Evaluate and implement movement from a variety of stimuli (e.g. music/sound, dance exemplars, literary forms, notation, natural phenomena, personal experiences/recall, world news, or social issues) to develop dance content for an original dance study or dance. b. Identify and select personal preferences and elements of dance to create an original dance study or dance. Use genre-specific dance terminology to articulate and justify choices made in movement development to communicate artistic intent.
HS Proficient: 
a.Explore a variety of stimuli for sourcing movement to develop an improvisational or choreographed dance study. Analyze the process and the relationship between the stimuli and the movement. b. Experiment with the elements of dance to explore personal movement preferences and strengths, and select movements that challenge skills and build on strengths in an original dance study or dance. View and discuss the dances of a variety of recognized choreographers, to see what choices they have made.
HS Accomplished: 
a.Synthesize content generated from stimulus materials to choreograph dance studies or dance works using original or codified movement. b.Apply personal movement preferences and strengths with the movement vocabulary of several dance styles or genres to choreograph an original dance study or dance work that varies the elements of dance in such a way as to communicate an artistic intent. Compare personal choices to those made by well-known choreographers, basing the comparison on research of their work, using both primary and secondary sources.
HS Advanced : 
a.Synthesize content generated from stimulus material. Experiment and take risks to discover a personal voice to communicate artistic intent. b.Expand personal movement preferences and strengths to discover new and unfamiliar solutions to communicate the artistic intent of an original dance work. Analyze the new and unfamiliar solutions, the use of variation of the elements of dance, and explain why they were effective in expanding artistic intent.
