10 Principles Method

Young MUVE

Go ahead and dance along! The MUVE Method supplies
fun, exercise and creative opportunity. Enjoy!

MUVE videos are easy to follow dances. As genuine one-take-wonders, MUVE dances are un-cut, never rehearsed, revised or repeated. They are created spontaneously and danced along with spontaneously.

The dancer in the center/front is called the "Muse"(lead dancer). Because the Muse improvises, following precisely would be difficult and is not necessary. Catch the Idea, and follow only "loosely." You are encouraged to create your own dance moves at any time.

Graphic MUVE Icons in the bottom corner display various cues and instructions. See muve.com/method for instructions on the Basic MUVE Concepts and find MUVE Concept Cards at the ToolBox muve.com/tool-box.

Now you can dance along whenever you have a minute, to give your body and mind a break from working too hard. Go ahead and do it right now! If you think the dances look like fun, just wait until you try one!

Interact while dancing & create movements as a pair connected by rags • Dance exercises for teens

(Move Around) Add some toy to your group dancing games and see how creativity ensues! Because MUVE is a spontaneous dance exercise method we do not choreograph any movement patterns. Movements are created on the fly. Inherently, this type of dance does not lend itself to holding on to each others hands. Usually, when dancers "hold hands" they are very likely to restrict each others movement. Dancing closely with a partner, without restricting each other, is the skill we are learning here. Using towels or rags adds about 10 inches of distance between the partners hands, which in turn allows a variety of maneuvers. As the students explore the possibilities, they learn to be mind-full of each other and to cooperate. Leading and following is non-verbally negotiated between the couples. [watch video]
