Using the Spider Web as the Stimuli , allow free rein , but guided learning . Discuss how a web may look , the shape and dynamics. I find this is best done as a group movement as it adds focus and a central point , to which the rest of the Dance can be added too.
How does Spiderman move ? , Jumps, Leaps , crouching. Soft landing . Bent knees , Discuss directional movements Discuss the Spiderman hand position (Palm up thumb, 2nd finger& little finger pointed 3rd/4th finger folded in ) .
