Minute Masterclass Episode 185

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 starting a new series all about our music favorites. In true DiscoverDance fashion, I’ll be sharing songs by concepts of dance. We start with Kate Kuper. 

Locomotor Movement is a fun directive song exploring the concepts of place, pathways, and directions.

Near and Far is a circle activity exploring the concepts of size, energy, weight, and relationships.

Imaginary Journey is a guided exploration exploring the concepts of pathways, energy, and weight.

Drumtalk is an active listening activity exploring the concepts of level, directions, and speed.

Show Your Feelings is an emotional adventure exploring the concepts of speed, energy, weight, and body shapes.

Body Shape Jam can be done seated, or standing for an extra challenge, and explores the concepts of body parts, body shapes, and relationships.

Action Dance is a self-space activity exploring the concepts of place, size, levels, directions, energy, and weight.

Little Seed is a creative activity exploring the concepts of size, levels, and directions.

And, finally, Travelers and the Magic Forest is a group activity exploring the concepts of place, directions, pathways, and relationships.

You can find all these songs and more from Kate Kuper on Spotify and iTunes.
