I assist my mum teaching the lower level classes in modern and ballet and tap, but now my mum has suggested that i take a class of my own.
She wants me to teach a class of turns, leaps, jumps, and some more gymnastics type moves.

This i am fine with, but i've no idea how to schedula the class, and make it not too hard but not too easy, and where to build up from...

I also teach 7-9 year olds , so just personally have fun .

in the first class to make sure ur class isn't too easy or too low , do all the things your thinking of teaching to them , and if they look like they're having trouble , then teach something easier . if they look like they're having no trouble at all , and look bored .. then make the steps harder .

hope this works !!

I suggest what the above said too ^^^^^ , but also plan it out the day before and write it down so when you are in the class if you do forget then you've got it written down on paper!!
Happy teaching... :) x
