Minute Masterclass Episode 169

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’re talking about the first station of our DiscoverDance 5-station obstacle course: the waiting station. Remember, one of the goals of the obstacle course is to keep the class moving. Rather than sitting and waiting for our turn to go through the course, we wait along poly spots or our taped train track until it is our turn to begin the obstacle course. You can listen to Minute Masterclass episode 41 for more information on our train track. Even though we are waiting, we have an important job that helps keep us engaged. When the spot/track in front of us is empty, we move up a space. By training our youngest dancers on how to move in a line, we are setting the foundation for across the floor work later in their dance education. They are learning to pay attention and to keep the line moving.
