TREE helps dance teachers to explore their teaching approach to create the best possible learning experience for the kids in their class.
Dance teachers need to find out the best ways to communicate and adapt their teaching style to the strengths and interests of each child,
Dance teachers may need to adapt some of the rules to make it easier for kids with disabilities to participate in dance.

Remember, if you are unsure how to modify an activity, consider asking the children, or their parents/carers, what modifications could be made so they can fully participate.
