Classroom Management Challenges in the Dance Class
Clark, Dawn
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v78 n2 p19-24 Feb 2007
Teaching dance can be a challenge because of the unique classroom-management situations that arise from the dynamic nature of the class content. Management is a delicate navigation of advance planning; rule setting; the establishment and implementation of daily protocols, routines, and interventions; and the teacher's own presentation. This article examines a variety of classroom management strategies relevant to the dance class--such as planning the lesson, preparing the environment for dance, greeting the class, introducing and presenting the content, and closure--as well as management strategies during activity transitions and unexpected events in the dance class.
