What is the Method Dance Program?
The short answer
What is the Method Dance Program? It is an 8 level dance program that includes dance exercises, dance lesson plans and program tracking tables. In it’s simplest form, that is what it is. But don’t let that fool you, it may seem simple, but it is powerful.
How does it work?
Let’s dig into things a bit deeper. Have you ever asked yourself, “have we done this exercise before?” Or maybe, “when was the last time we worked on this step because these kids have no idea what I’m talking about?” The Method is the plan that keeps you on track. There is a set goal, and a map to get there. Week over week, you will follow our tracking tables and execute on the weekly class plan. When you are wondering (which you won’t be ever again) when you last did an exercise you can see you taught it to them on week 3, then added the arms on week 5, and reviewed it again on week 6. It’s that simple.
What is it about the Method Dance Program teachers like so much?
Teachers like this program because it is easy to use. We also leave style and dance movement up to the instructors’ discretion. What do I mean by that? Well, for starters, arms are yours to decide on. Secondly, counts are yours to decide as well. We felt they should be based on your students’ ability, so as the teacher we left it up to you. Finally, across the floor is a series of steps, it is open to the instructor as to how to connect steps together in progressions. Our teachers love this because they still feel free to conduct the class true to their personal style.
That’s what the Method Dance Program is!
