Teaching dance in school?
We understand that teaching dance in schools can be enormously daunting, But it really shouldn’t be. Much like giving out paper and asking children to draw a picture you simply need to set the task and ask the questions to help them to create their own work of art.
‘Simple steps to teaching dance’ uses themes frequently seen in primary schools, each of which has a series of lesson plans in a simple step-by-step format. These enable the children to work independently or in a team, give and receive feedback as well as analyse the work of others but most of all to stimulate their imaginations!
This book has everything you need from simple tips to exploring dance movement.
The 12 chapters contain a host of lessons for all ages of primary children. Suggestions for music are included and also cross-curricular extension activities. It really is the definitive guide to teaching dance.
Whether you’re new to teaching dance or an experienced teacher, this book will give you support, guidance and inspiration and make sure your dance lessons are a joy for you and your pupils.
