A dance party

At BestStart Vivian Street, our tamariki love a good dance party! It gives everybody an opportunity to get active, whether it be indoors or outdoors and this is one of our favorite activities!

Dancing is a great tool to use when teaching tamariki about active movement which supports self-regulation. A child's mood can be like a storm cloud that can strike at any time. One minute they might be having fun, the next moment they might be extremely frustrated and struggling to express their feelings. 

Joining in with a boogie can be a good and positive way for them to expel their frustrations, gain confidence, build positive relationships and most of all, have some fun!
