How to Teach Preschool Ballet: A Guidebook for Teachers
This book is great for anyone who works with preschoolers in any capacity. Teaching preschool dance is an art and that art needs to be learned. Most dance teachers do not go to school to learn how to teach dance. Dance teachers must learn through proper training on their own most of the time. This book will take the fear out of the beginning teacher and will replace that with fun! The reader will learn how to effectively prepare and run a preschool ballet class from start to finish. This includes how to construct your curriculum, how to keep your students interested in your class, how to teach steps and choreography and most of all how to have a great time with your students! Learn tricks to keep your students listening, behaving and staying safe. Even the pro teacher will learn new ideas to improve their teaching. We all need to be the best teacher we can by learning and growing! Remember those who can – Teach!
Creative Movement Games for Preschool Ballet: Incorporating Props
Props are wonderful to incorporate into a preschool ballet class! In this booklet I am going to give you the understanding of how beneficial props are to your students, how they are beneficial in helping you run your classes, how to use them safely, and many creative activities incorporating props.
If you are nervous about using props or simply are new to teaching, this booklet will hopefully help you feel more comfortable when you are teaching. That way you will not fear props but see them as a useful tool in adding creativity, improving motor skills and brain boosting to your classes!
If you are already comfortable using props in your classes, great! You may still find some useful tips and many fun games at the back of the booklet for you to expand your classes! Read and enjoy!
