The 92nd Street Y DEL Dance for Early Childhood Curriculum encourages learning through play, providing a stimulating, multi-sensory and nurturing community for diverse young learners to discover their innate movement capacity.
Participants in this course will gain experience in creating developmentally appropriate dance lessons and activities for children ages 3-7 years old. Interactive and participatory, this course will cover the following topics: developmentally appropriate lessons and content for early childhood, developmental patterns and the sensory system, games and short activities, basics of early childhood dance lesson planning, LMA vocabulary as a springboard for dance learning and lesson plan organization, strategies for effective teaching, working with children with disabilities, teaching children online, using video prompts, and collaborative lesson planning with peers. The 2022 DEL Dance for Early Childhood course will take place over Zoom in a synchronous model.
