Need new ideas for your toddler & preschool dance classes?  Want to spice up storytime in your classroom or library? 

This is the workshop for you.  

I've been using story books as the inspiration for lessons for over a decade and I've learned a lot along the way.  It used to take me hours to plan a class based on a book only to come up with a lesson that felt flat and disjointed.  Now I have a simple process that takes words off the page and into dancers' bodies and makes me feel like I'm offering an amazing and unique dance class experience.

Join me for this workshop and I'll show you how to turn books into a class that develops dance skills, encourages creativity, strengthens improvisation, and has a cohesive theme that keeps students excited and engaged. 

As an added bonus you'll receive:

  • A warmup that will get your students' brains & bodies talking to each other so they're better able to listen, focus and learn, set to a classic children's book.

  • A set of 5 lesson plans to get you started

  • Access to a list of books perfect for a 5-10 minute activity to work into your existing dance class, story time, or school day.

Additional details: The workshop will be 2 hours long.  It will be facilitated via Facebook Live in a secret Facebook group which registered students will continue to have access to after the workshop ends.
