Not just for Dancing!
A body in Motion
- Helps kids learn to move though their environment in a smooth flowing and graceful way
Assessing the skill
- It is hard to break rhythm down into a specific body movements or pattern, it should be a part of all movement
- It is important to offer activities in programs like dance, music play, skipping, hopscotch, etc. that work on rhythm
- Activities should allow children to move in patterns, changing the shape of their bodies, move to a beat/music and move around each other skillfully
Developing Rhythm helps children perform many fundamental movements easier and with more confidence.
