disco duck training (6) - CopyA Child’s attention span can be very short! In order to keep their interest, preparatory exercises need to be upbeat, lively and  last approximately up to 2 minutes.

When planning exercises for this age group, list the learning outcomes that are achievable and then think how to make them as engaging and fun as possible. So what are these important learning outcomes that will send our very little tiny stars onto a lifelong love of dance?

Rhythm and timing; co-ordination;developing locomotive and non-locomotive actions;basic dance technique; watching; listening to name a few….

Repetition is essential to develop this understanding; the learning outcome needs to stay the same but the delivery needs to be varied to reinforce the development of the exercises.

Music needs to be well phrased and with a steady accented beat that makes it easy to follow, plus have a funky uplifting feel.

Coming soon – dance and performance perfection.
