Example Lesson Plan

Little Dippers     Dance Program Week 8 & 9

MONTHLY THEME: Giving Thanks

WEEKLY THEME: Rhythms & Partners

 

WARM UP-

 

This week we warm up with reminders of what we are thankful for and people we are thankful for.  Warming up our minds, hearts and bodies!

 

 

DANCE/BALLET FUNDAMENTALS:

 

Every week we will work on a combination of plie’, releve’, tendu’, passe’, port de bras, and saute’. Now we are varying our timing and rhythms of each exercise…..we started each exercise at 2 counts each movement and now we are varying the rhythm to 2/1 or 1/1 each movement. Teaching the children music theory along with their dance movement.

 

Penguins & Chipmunks & Ducktails- Learn to dance with a teddy bear friend!
