For our “Dance to Learn!” Activity, we played Freeze dance which teaches creativity and body control. Everyone dances until the music stops and then they need to freeze. The children also learned creativity and self confidence by creating their own moves and control by having to freeze on cue.

We are coming along great on our end of session dance routine!
