Dance Duet

Pre-Schooler Playtime

Let your child pick a fun, fast song to dance to. Take turns making up dance moves. They can start, then you copy them. Keep going back and forth as you both repeat the moves and add new one. Before you know it you will have a whole dance routine!

See what your child is learning

When you and your child build on each other’s patterns, they’re using their memory and focus to remember the moves. They are also thinking flexibly to make up their own moves. These skills are important for creativity and learning.
