I can't say for sure where I first stumbled across Dance Dance Transversal. It was most certainly on twitter while catching up on #MTBoS posts. I found many people who had implemented the lesson, but the one that was done the best was this one by JJ Martinez and Jenn Vadnais.
Last year, I used their Billie Jean and Uptown Funk videos. My supervisor just happened to be doing a walk through as I was transitioning from one activity to the next. When he walked in the room, the kids were cleaning up their markers and other supplies from a project that they were working on (they were creating alphabet scrap books for "The ABCs of Geometry") while I was bringing up the needed videos. He inquired about what we were about to do for the second half of the period. I let him know that what I was about to do would either go horribly wrong or be fantastic. Of course with this bit of information, he had to stay. I wrote about the implementation on that day here.
This year, wanted to step up my game. Although I really liked the videos that JJ and Jen created, I wanted to make my own. I made a Single Ladies version and a Hips Don't Lie version. I love the Shakira video because I bring this activity to a higher level. By removing the visual cue for each dance move, I require students to think more about identifying the any types. Feel free to use either of these videos in your own class.
Next year, I think I'll add some sort of hand motions. Maybe one move for angles that are supplementary and another for those that are congruent.
I'm also looking for extensions of this. I know Jen also created a Tap Tap Trigonometry game where students 'drummed' to practice sine, cosine, and tangent ratios. I need to brainstorm where else this type of movement based activity might help students with vocabulary/identification skills. I'd love to hear your ideas.
