  3. That's really helped. Thank you! Can anyone suggest some music I could use? I need to check if there is a CD of stomp music that I could buy. I will be teaching four or five lessons of stomp dancing so I need to work out how to establish a progression, but I will definitely be using the ideas from the suggested teachers tv video, e.g. for warming up and the children coming up with a sequence themselves and then later peforming it to the class. Great suggestions. If anyone else has suggestions, please add them. Teaching dancing is like I said, new to me but I definitely want to teach it well and learn from people who have already taught it. I'm not afraid to teach something new and I'm sure the class will really enjoy it.

    Yes, show them examples, a short routine of your own and videos to 'get the little brain cells working' & then leave it up to them to work out some routines themselves. When you 'watch & assess' them, that's the time to start looking for particular examples to put into your final 'show piece which can then be rehearsed & performed.They''ll be proud of it because they've come up with the ideas & make sure that the ones who find it easier to learn at at the front so the ons who find it more difficult can watch them for their moves.
