disco duck training (16) - CopyIt is true!  Anyone with a certain amount of practice can perform the necessary steps to produce a routine to music, but not everyone can dance!

To Dance is to perform; to use our bodies to express the music and to give pleasure to those watching. (Rhythmical expression).

When we teach dance, we are gifted with a truly remarkable job – to ensure that our pupils are really enjoying what we teach so that their performance is a true reflection of joy.  Whether a performance is a parent watching their child or being enthralled by a stage or TV performance, there are 2 things that finish the pieces of the puzzle.

Firstly, when we enjoy a performance, we enjoy the music.

Secondly, we appreciate the way the dancer moves to it – technically sound and dancing from the heart, using the music to deliver clever choreography.

In the beginning, we are aiming to create a good foundation; a child who can dance rhythmically, using their body in a correct and safe way and really attempting to “feel” the music.

Exposing children to different rhythms and “light and shade” in their dancing from a young age, can help to encourage this – how they use their bodies when the music is fast and upbeat compared to expressing themselves when the music is slow will ultimately aid to perfect dance and performance as a child grows.

We are happy when we are listening to music, we are even happier when we are able to move well to it.

Happy dancing everyone!

Coming soon – props are priceless!
