Minute Masterclass Episode 94
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 in our Power of Props series, we are talking about gross motor props. These are your poly spots, cones, agility hoops, tunnels, floor tape, and trampolines to name a few. Gross motor props offer the most variety in early childhood dance classes. They assist in reaching many developmental goals such as body control, core strength, upper/lower body strength, crossing the midline, dynamic balance, and shoulder stabilization.
We use gross motor props when jumping, hopping, galloping, leaping, crawling, marching…really anything that gets us movin’ and groovin’. These props are great for obstacle courses. The creative possibilities are endless! For more information, visit DiscoverDance.com.
