Example Lesson Plan
Little Dippers Dance Program Week 8 & 9
MONTHLY THEME: Giving Thanks
WEEKLY THEME: Rhythms & Partners
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!
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!
This week we will continue our work on our dances for our Winter performance.
Penguins & Chipmunks- Away in the Manager- Sheep
Aardvarks- Silent Night- Stars
Ducktails- Go Tell It On The Mountain- Shepherds
