Adventures in Pre-school Dance takes popular nursery rhymes and classical melodies and transforms them structurally and stylistically into fun, funky music appropriate for pre-school dance class. Each volume contains two complete self-contained classes – more than 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.
The series was created with the help of four dance teachers with a wide experience of teaching RAD ballet and ISTD modern and tap. The team was keen to make the music useful not just to qualified dance teachers but also to non-specialist teachers who want to explore dance in the classroom or gym.
Series devised by Andrew Holdsworth and Eva Perdiki
