About "A Loopy Dance"
Through moving and dancing, let your child identify the loops and repetitions in the choreography. It is also a great time to guide his / her spatial perspective, by practising with her directions! From there, let her create her own dance with a certain number of loops!
• Dance instruction printable (find it here)
Once your child is able to grasp the concept of loops, let them have some fun by choreographing their own dance routine. Give them a set number of loops to incorporate into their choreography (e.g. "your dance should contain at least 3 loops in it")
- This time, instead of following the instructions sheet, get your child to choreograph a few moves by themself!
- Add in a loop rule e.g. This dance should have 3 loops.
- Watch your child perform! Film it down and tag us in the video on FB or IG.
