This 25-minute video teaches students an entire dance sequence to the folk-inspired Hungarian Dance No. 5 by Romantic composer Johannes Brahms, performed by VSO Violinist Ann Okagaito. The choreography, led by dance teacher Tanya Phelps, includes elements of character dance, and and provides opportunities for students’ ideas and expression.

Through movement and dance, students connect with the elements of music such as form, tempo, pitch and dynamics.
