Dancing through my weekends is coming to an end and it has totally snuck up on me! Our year over at Pegasus Studios where I teach pre-school and early childhood movement officially ended last Sunday with a whack load of recitals.
My Saturday classes were bitter sweet as I am ready for a bit of break, however I am really going to miss the little ones. And some of us had a rough start… My 2.5 year old classes cried a lot over the first few weeks and both my 4 year old classes pushed back against the class structure after they had all been in full day kindergarten for the week.
Both situations had me questioning what I was doing and what was developmentally appropriate for the children. I did a lot of soul searching and read Jane Healy’s Your Child’s Growing Mind.
Nine months changes a lot with littles though and all of my classes reached stages of fun and ease. There is nothing like a room full of dancing three year olds to bring you out of a funk. I guess I’m going to have to find something else to pick me up through the next little while!
