2 Tips for Teachers | Working With Young Children

Tip #1

In a class of 3- to 5-year-olds, it is a good idea to vary the format of the class. One way to do that is to place hula hoops on the floor and tell the children that each one’s place is in a particular hoop. (They become very territorial!) It makes for a fun class and teaches discipline as well.

Tip #2

If you observe that your dancers are developing strange habits, such as affectations involving the hands or shoulders, look at yourself in the mirror to see if perhaps you have developed some odd traits that you don’t want them to mimic. Children pick up bad habits much more quickly than good ones!
