    Simply Excellent

    This book is ideal for beginning creative dance/modern teachers or a seasoned pro. There are several lesson plans (for all ages), music recommendations, prop ideas and imagery ideas to ensure a successful class. I have used this book over and over again for my toddler class thru adults.
