Recommended Website:

Dance Kids

(www.dance-kids.org/)

Age Range: 4-16 (Grades K-11, with parental supervision)

 

This website shares information and fun activities about dance for kids 4-9. (However, there is a sister site for teens – and you can scroll to the bottom of this review for info.)

When you get to the site you will meet your hosts, two animated children named – what else? – Fred and Ginger. Click on the door to enter the site. A new page opens with an animated screen. Simply roll your cursor over the pictures to see what’s available or – EVEN BETTER – just click on any picture and a new screen opens. That screen contains a menu at the top of the page from which you can navigate the site and it offers an assortment of activities themed around dance including:  

  • Games: Interactive, dance-themed games like word searches and puzzles
  • Dancing Globe: Learn about dance customs in different countries.
  • Dance Stories: Read stories about a child’s experience in dance school.
  • Dance Gallery: Through photos and brief text examine some of the many forms and styles of dance.

There are quite a few other dance-themed activities as well – and there is even a referral service for parents looking for dance classes for their children.

You say you have a teenager who loves dance? Then do check out the sister-site called Young-Dancers.org. It contains information on: 

  • Careers in dance
  • How to do certain trendy dances like hip-hop
  • Interesting quotes by famous dancers
  • A quiz to test your knowledge about dance
  • And much more.

These websites from the ISTD Dance Examinations Board might inspire your students to pursue their passion in dance.
