Minute Masterclass Episode 175
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. Let’s perform a tap obstacle course while exploring the concept of directions.
For our waiting station, we move along our taped train track as we wait our turn. For our balance station, we step walk backwards with a bean bag on our head from spot to spot. For our gross motor station, we jump forwards from hoop to hoop staying up on the balls of our feet. During the spatial pattern station, we march sideways from spot to spot. Finally, using a ballet barre to help us balance, we explore the directions of a shuffle hop step in the exploration station. If time allows, we will get back on the train track and do it all over again.
