Minute Masterclass Episode 173
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 fifth and final station of our DiscoverDance 5-station obstacle course: the exploration station. Any activity that explores the concept of the day will go here. We can use props such as a tunnel to explore size, level, speed, or relationships. A parachute to explore level, directions, energy, weight, or relationships. Instruments to explore size, speed, energy, weight, or body parts. And movement cards or a ballet barre to explore any concept relating to a codified dance skill or movement relating to the concept of the day. You can learn more about conceptual teaching in Minute Masterclass episodes #45-56. And, stay tuned for specific class activities for this and all stations in future Minute Masterclass episodes.
