Minute Masterclass Episode 77
Welcome to your one-minute masterclass. I’m Andrea Trench, founder of DiscoverDance and creator of the Foundations Course for Early Childhood Dance Educators. Today we are exploring the theme, Royal Ball. Our concept for this theme is BODY SHAPES. We create a multi-sensory learning environment by introducing the concept with themed movement cards or toy King and Queen Crowns. We develop our body awareness, alignment, and balance as we lengthen our spine and neck and send our energy through our body parts to create royal body shapes. We explore our theme and the concept of the day with the song Beanbag Balance by Marie Barnett. We also connect our body shapes with our ballet terminology as we ballet walk, plié, and chassé throughout class. For more information, visit DiscoverDance.com.
