New Mind – Leaving Behind the Canned Syllabus

Dancer 1 JPegWe must now think with New Mind. When I realized my advanced dancers had rotten cardio, I now set all the center combos to 2/4 music and combine them all the final 20 minutes of class for several run throughs. So the adage R&L goes right into the pirouette R&L, et. They LOVE to HATE that one!! When I realized the kids thought of themselves as great dancers and the corrections don’t apply to them, I started utilizing peer coaching so one of their classmates can tell them their standing leg is bent and their hip is up.
