Who doesn’t love Sharla Dance and her teaching methods? If you are new to Sharla Dance, never fear! She’s got her workshop video available with all her details! Let me help you jump on the Sharla Dance band wagon!!
I was able to attend this workshop in person when Sharla came to Utah last summer! It was amazing to meet her and learn this method of teaching music to children. I’ll be honest, the method is a little daunting and intimidating (at least at first)!
Check out my post HERE with what I learned from this workshop.
But after attending, I started adding a little bit of Sharla’s flair into my own primary! I have had amazing results!! Scroll through all my posts HERE with my lesson plans that implement her teaching methods.
In a nutshell, Sharla teaches music by having kids interact with songs through movement. They may not sing at first but they are still learning the song. Anyway, I can’t sing Sharla Dance’s praises enough!!
Sharla Dance Videos
Sharla’s 2021 video contains:
… 3 to 4 different activities for at least four different songs using this year’s songs to demonstrate. It gives the science behind why certain techniques are very successful for one age group and not with another, and why children need high concentration, then a change of pace, plus lots of other time tested principles for success.
