Get the music on
You need to buy or rent music CDs. You can even play music in an MP3 player or load it on internet. You can chose different types of music ranging from classical tunes to upbeat dance. You can even pick CDs of rhythmic music like African drumming to teach children for dancing.
You need to tell children and advise their parents about the type of clothing. Kids should wear loose and comfortable clothes when they come for dance classes. In case you are dancing indoors, kids should wear layers so they can easily take off when they get hot.
Let the children do stretching before dancing. You can either let them sit in yoga directions or stretch your shoulders and mover your head in circle. Then stretch your legs and touch the toes. Remember to tell the importance of stretching and inform them that stretching makes your body ready for dancing.
In the opening five minutes, you need to tell the children they can dance freely for five minutes. Let the kids show their moves and move in whatever way they like.
Now come towards the slower, classical music. You need to tell children listen to the music and teach them slow arm movements. Also show them how to turn and perform small jumps in the air.
After playing classical music for five minutes, change the music to rhythmic drumming. You need to lead your children towards quick rhythmic movements like kicks and bends.
