Building on the research developed through the Choreographic Thinking Tools, Mind and Movement is a practical resource for use in a creative learning environment, enabling learners to engage with movement in new and dynamic ways.

The easy-to-follow lesson plans ensure Mind and Movement's relevance to a range of teachers from those with little or no previous dance experience through to specialist teachers working with GCSE, BTEC and A level students. The resource includes tools relating specifically to GCSE and BTEC dance requirements including choreographic and structuring devices, working with stimulus, developing new material and movement motifs, reflection and analysis.

Mind and Movement comes in an A5 box and consists of the following elements:

Teachers' Guide - Introduction and information on how to use the resource and an essay on imagery and the mind.
Lesson Plans - Five lesson plans with practical imagery and movement tasks.
Principles Poster - Display poster of the twelve Mind and Movement principles.
Discover Card - Questions for encouraging students' reflection on their creative process.
What Next? Cards - Tasks for developing and structuring created movement material.
