Adventures in Pre-School Dance

This popular series of albums takes nursery rhymes and classical melodies and transforms them into fun, funky music appropriate for pre-school and young dancers. Each volume contains two complete self-contained classes – over an hour of enchanting, evocative music for practice, improvisation and performance – along with a selection of exercises specially devised to develop creativity, listening skills, imagination and musicality in young dancers. Each volume also contains a series of games to introduce a range of musical concepts such as tempo, pitch and timbre. Adventures in Pre-School Dance was created to be useful not just to qualified dance teachers but also to non-specialist teachers who want to explore dance in the classroom.
