Be aware of students’ sensory needs

Find out what colours, textures, sounds, or movements the student prefers or dislikes. Use props to incorporate tactile and visual stimuli in the dance activities. Props can include silky or floaty scarves, ribbon wands, textured fabric such as velvet or faux fur, stretchy bands and balloons. Children might bring in other objects which can be explored as dance props.
