In this one time meeting, students will get moving to a song from a popular movie: Mary Poppins! We will begin class with a brief warm up to wake up our bodies and feel out the space, and then move on to learning a beginner musical theatre dance combination set to about 45 seconds of the song "Spoonful of Sugar!" Dance steps may include slides, turns, improvising poses, and many more. We will take a small water and brain break at the halfway point and do a brief free dance to explore our own...
By the end of our session, students will have a new knowledge of different types of beginner dance steps used in traditional musical theater choreography, as well as how to piece together different portions of a combination. They might also learn a new song!
As a baby, preschool, and elementary theatre and music teacher, I have worked with students ages 5 months to 12 years in this format. I believe that moving our bodies is a great way to keep kids active and discover new ways to be creative, while challenging them to remember specific movements in a piece of music keeps their brains sharp. This is a unique class in that students have the chance to perform Broadway style dance combinations from their living rooms!
Students should be in a space where they have room to move (seated with headphones is not advisable for this class!). Students should also wear sensible footwear (no open toe shoes or heels). Barefoot or socked feet are welcome! The following is OPTIONAL: If the student chooses, they may have costume pieces that are in the style of Mary Poppins to put on for our final performance in the last five minutes of class. Or, if they'd rather come dressed to impress, they can feel free to wear their costume the entire class!
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
