Abstract

The purpose of this research was to implement specific writing prompts into a high-school curriculum that aids in the choreographic process in an effort to bring about confident student choreographers. This research evaluated the choreographic process using a series of writing prompts to support participants with the goal of producing successful student choreographed dance works throughout a semester long high school dance course. The researcher posed the following three essential questions: How does the writing prompt aid in the choreographic process? What did the participants learn about the choreographic process by using writing prompts? Do the participants feel a sense of accomplishment with their end product? This research project was intended to benefit not only student choreographers, but also dance educators and dance specialists. This research project demonstrated that through the use of writing prompts, student choreographers gradually became more confident to choreograph.
