These last weeks we had the opportunity to dance with the kids from primary school. They asked us (me and Alby) to help them with dance choreography for Smotri (a final show at the end of the school year/performance that happened ones a year and all the student are invited to join and participate).

 They chose the song Pitbull - Feel This Moment ft. Christina Aguilera, to make an amazing choreography for 4 minutes.

We were very happy to help them, because it gave us the chance to know them and to help them improving their social and communication skills. For some of the kids, speaking in English with us was a little bit intimidating, but in the end, with encouragement and motivation we manage to communicate better. We also tried to speak a little bit in Macedonian, by asking their help all the time and that gave them courage. :)

 

Another important thing is that they learned how to work as part of a team. This required discipline and focus, skills that can be useful in their future. Also, the dance helped them overcome fears, when they performed in front of an audience.

 

That being said, I believe that this kind of activity can help the kids improve their skills, becoming more confident about themselves and, why not, develop an appreciation for the arts.

Anda I.
