Minute Masterclass Episode 120

Welcome to your one-minute masterclass. I’m Andrea Trench, founder of DiscoverDance and creator of the Foundations Course for Early Childhood Dance Educators and the DiscoverDance Experience Membership. Today we are answering the frequently asked question: what should we do if we are late for class?

Being late for class is going to happen, and it’s ok! Oftentimes rushing to get to class on time can cause a child to become anxious or upset. If this sounds like your child, it’s important to reassure them that they will not be in trouble and it’s ok to be late sometimes. When you arrive, remaining calm will help your child remain calm. Don’t forget hugs and kisses before quietly sending your child into class. To avoid off-task behavior for the rest of the students, it is best to enter between songs or activities. If you are unable to consistently arrive on time, please speak with us to find a class that is more suitable for your schedule.
