So you have to teach MIDDLE SCHOOL DANCE...and you're FREAKING OUT...and wishing you had taken up your parents on those dance lessons that they offered you when you were a kid...and you DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START?
Look no further! Having danced my entire childhood I have a strong passion for dance education and I have put together a resource to get you started in teaching dance in grades 6-8.
Included in this resource is:
-A worksheet including important dance vocabulary (includes answers)
-A fun "Getting To Know You" Dance activity which leads to creating an entire class dance (don't worry you don't have to know ANY dance moves - the dance is created by turning natural body movements during conversation into dance moves)
-Includes questions to ask for Getting To Know You Activity
-Worksheets for students to keep track of their dance moves as they create their class dance
-A reflection for students to complete when they are done their class dance
These lessons are sure to provide you with about 5 or more full periods of dance fun. If you have any questions, please ask! I have used these activities with many different classes between grade 6 and 8 and the students always love creating the class dance.
