Minute Masterclass Episode 80
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, Under The Big Top. Our concept for this theme is DIRECTIONS. We create a multi-sensory learning environment by introducing the concept with circus themed movement cards. We improve our balance and coordination by moving FORWARDS, BACKWARDS, RIGHT, LEFT, UP and DOWN as we work on our tumbling skills across a gymnastics mat. We explore our theme and the concept of the day with the song Tightrope Walk by Music for Moving. For an extra challenge, we repeat the activity moving backwards and balancing a scarf or a beanbag on our head. For more information, visit DiscoverDance.com.
