Things to think about:
- What do you want your children/students to take away from their performing experience? (It can be as simple as to demonstrate what they learned in class, follow through with a commitment or to share their movement ideas with others.)
- What can you teach your children/students about performing that goes beyond the dance? (How to be a good audience member, what an audience member experiences from buying a ticket to getting a program to finding their designated seats.)
- What do you want your children or students to learn about putting on a performance? (Costumes, lighting, music, make-up, tickets, etc)
- How involved do you want you students to be in creating/choreographing the dance? (Can they create a few steps, maybe personalize their bows, vote on the music or props?)
- What role do you see the parents taking? (Backstage helpers, costume makers, or nothing at all)
- What do you want your children/students to learn about performing? (Everyone needs to work together, practicing leads to perfecting a dance, everyone has a special part to play, you can overcome butterflies and nervousness, etc.)
Have fun creating an end of the year goal and objectives for and with the children in your life!
