CHAPTER 3 Method For my project, I decided to organize a weekend dance workshop for children. I am not a dance/movement therapist so I cannot organize a session of dance/movement therapy so I arranged for something similar. I decided that I would teach a miniature dance workshop comprised of two dance classes for two hours per day for two days. This service is relevant to the ideas behind dance/movement therapy because while it is not specifically a therapy session, I will still be using dance and movement to assist the participants in releasing negative emotion and feeling better about themselves. I am looking for participants in my workshop to be boys and girls from any age above eight years old. I decided to make the youngest age eight because I believe that dance teaching styles need to be slightly altered for children under eight and that allowing younger children into the workshop would be more difficult for everyone. It would be hard for me to alternate between teaching styles in the same class, the children younger than eight would become frustrated that they struggled with the choreography and the children older than eight would also be frustrated because they were learning at too slow a pace. I felt that it would be best to hold my event in the late morning or early afternoon during a weekend. I decided on these days and times because children are freshest and in a much better mood to focus and learn earlier in the day than later – they have not yet worn themselves out with the day’s activities. I also decided that a weekend – Saturday and Sunday – would also be best for parents of children interested in taking these classes. Often times, parents’ work schedules conflict with extracurricular activities, making them harder to participate in for children. Because a majority of parents have weekends off, I thought that scheduling my event

on a Saturday and Sunday gave children the best opportunity possible to participate in the classes. I first had to look for local studios in San Luis Obispo County.
