Complete Guide to Primary Dance, provides all the insight, expertise and confidence you’ll need to teach dance to children from reception to year 6.
Regardless of your experience, this book and accompanying web resource will enable you to plan and deliver age-appropriate learning experiences for your children by offering a wealth of practical and creative ideas that you can use in your teaching.
A companion web resource that includes a bank of photos, video clips, warm-ups and written resources to assist you in your teaching allows you to download and print the photographs, while the video clips show progression in learning through bite-sized steps that will help you guide the children to create and perform dances in real time.
