We learned the basic dance movements for Skips, chugs, slides, and zig zags.

For our “Dance to Learn!” Activity, we created a dance story. The story focused on teaching quality of movement and weight of movement. The story was about mice that go on a trip to the moon. They have to walk heavy or light depending on where they are.
The children learned creativity, self confidence, and had fun!
