Exploring Tears through Dance

This section of the website includes some films created by the young people who took part in this project.

The films show their different ideas and exploration of tears through dance.

There are three different types of tears. These are:

 

Reflex tears

Basal tears

Emotional tears

 

Click on the links on the left hand side of this page, to find examples of their ideas and dance work.

You can then try out some of these ideas for creating dance about tears yourself.

 

Remember these ideas are a starting point. You and your dance teacher may want to come up with your own ideas exploring the different types of tears through dance.

Note:
Sometimes you will see the word ‘choreography’. This is a difficult word, but it simply means choosing to put different movements together.
