Use the last week before winter break to do a New Year’s countdown! For your younger classes, put some scarves on top of your parachute and toss them in the air together while you countdown from ten. Be sure to shout Happy New Year! For your older classes, share your favorite moment from dance class so far this year.
UNWRAP THE FUN
Play a dance “Gifts & Giggles” game with your older students. Give each student 2 blank notecards. On one, they should write a favorite dance step. On the other, they should write a silly dance step. Mix the cards up and deal out one to every person and put the rest in the center. Don’t show your cards. On their turn, everyone can steal another person’s card or choose one from the middle. After you go around twice and every student has 2 cards, they must come up with 16 counts of movement that uses both steps on their card!
