There are many ways you can practice at home, without the playlist!
We attest to our "tried and true" blue line. The blue line is simply painters tape laid on the floor. We begin and end each class behind the blue line. This is a great starting place to work on dance etiquette! The magical piece of tape is where our class comes together as a team. The Kinderdance team teaches many of our educational curriculum from the blue line. It is both for safety and discipline, but I also use it as a calming place to engage my students, verbally, with dance.
In my Kinderdance Level Two class, I often show my students the word "etiquette", and ask them what good dance etiquette would be! We talk about listening ears, respect, and teamwork being good examples of "dance etiquette". It's never too early to begin teaching teamwork, and I will tell you why!
Small children naturally gravitate towards one another for comfort and safety. Oftentimes in Kindertots, children are more likely to "follow the crowd". As they grow older, their heightened sense of independence is being challenged, and teamwork can be used as a strategy to enhance a single child's unique strengths to create one empowering classroom. We all have so much to learn from one another.
Can you believe all of this starts from just a blue piece of tape?
