Dance lesson is a great way to teach children how to express their emotions and feelings through the body. Having a fun experience at each dance class will help them develop a sense of confidence, self-efficacy and social awareness. It’s also a wonderful way to get exercise, have some laughs and bond with friends.

Students who are new to dancing may need extra attention and support to master the basic skills. It’s important that they don’t feel overwhelmed or they will lose interest and not return to the dance studio. To prevent this from happening, teachers should plan lessons carefully to ensure they are progressing through the material in a way that is not too challenging for their students.

This can be done by planning dance lessons that are structured and varied. Lessons should start with a warm-up and end with a cool down. In between, teachers can include activities that focus on the skills they want to work on. For example, when teaching a group of young children how to move as an ensemble, it can be useful to include a fun activity such as ‘limbo’ to promote flexibility. It’s also good to use visual cues to help the children understand what the choreography should look like, such as videos of someone performing the routine or a picture of the dance moves. This helps them to make connections between what they are doing, the steps and the rhythm.
