We learned the basic dance movements for Skips, chugs, slides, zig zags and hops on one foot.

For our “Dance to Learn!” Activity, we created a dance story. The story focused different parts of the body. The Dance Story was about mice that sneak into their aunt’s studio. They use different color paints to paint themselves, the walls, and the floor.
The children learned creativity, self confidence, and had fun!

We started learning the dance Be Our Guest!
