See if you and your child can do the Blue Danube Ice Skating dance or the Baby Elephant Walk dance at home. Teach it to your
other family members! Let your child "lead" the dance and see how proud he/she will be! Remind
parents if they pay monthly that tuition is due next week.
Creativity and Improvisation
Music improvisation is an indispensable component of a music education. Improvisation is used to develop children's abilities
to understand the creative process of music. Following choreographed dance movements is fun and helps the children understand form and hear themes in
classical music. To add improvisation to this fun activity, encourage your child to hold dancing scarves (or fabric or towels) or stuffed animals. The
children can make up their own movements to the music they hear.
