Twenty-minute lessons for Ages 3 – 5

Here is a sequence of five, 20-minute lessons I taught to 3-5 year olds in an Early Childhood setting with approx. 18 children, 1 lead teacher, 1 – 2 assisting teachers and myself.  Creative dance was entirely new to this population.  We worked in an open space, cleared of all supplies, with a circle marked on the floor with gym tape (starting with Lesson 3, for teaching “Sodeo”).  Music Resources: AlphaBeat, Brain Bop, Step on the Beat, Songs for Dancing

Lesson 1 Place

Lesson 2 Warm Up

Lesson 3 Rhythm & Pulse

Lesson 4 Direction

Lesson 5 Direction Part 2

    This is very helpful. Thank you…..I am heading off to a preschool to teach this morning and it is difficult to create lessons that work for preschool in addition to my studio classes. Thanks!!!
