Charade Card Sets for the Beginning Dance student

Free Shipping!

As the advancing student moves into the Beginning Dance level, the cards reflect this change. 

They now learn to improvise what is written on the card - simple charade moves are now established as the means of portraying the cards to their classmates. Adding paired skits increases acting skills.There are five different sets of cards in the Beginning Dance level. All card sets are individually encased in laminate to protect them for years of long term use.

I have always included these types of games in my beginning dance programs. It’s important for students to overcome shyness with acting as it will be very useful when creating dance roles. They take five minutes of class time - try them, children love playing these card games! In the Pre-Dance 4 to 6 age groups we introduce pantomime with colorful easy to to read picture cards.

Three sets are offered; Animal, Activities, or Careers.  Each set is $25.00.
