Competition season is coming

IMG_3563

Competition season is fast approaching and that means tons of organization on my part to make sure I have caregivers for my kids while I am away every weekend. From planning meals (even for myself!), and times I will be home and away, everything has to be planned. How do you stay organized with your busy schedule? Do you use technology? Or do you stick to the old pen and calendar? I use a bit of both; it helps to have some things electronic to send to the important supporters in my life to keep the lines of communication open and clear! What works best for you?

Teaching Dance!

Back to School

It`s back to school for a lot people and most importantly dancers!!

I am teaching another year, but the added challenge is that I am teaching preschoolers. I am taking this new endeavor very seriously and I want to do it right. I want my classes to be fun and educational for all ages.

So I start with the research hunt. I turn to resources that I have acquired through workshops that I have taken, I use the internet and search the library.

Here is a link to an article that I received at a workshop that I took through PAEC last year and I find it very helpful: http://www.dancestudiolife.com/2009/01/little-kids-big-challenges/

I would love to hear any feedback from other teachers. What do you use for your students that are entering dance under the age of 5?
