Muddy Water Puddle Place

The muddy water puddle place is so much fun! I use this place to teach borree and saute to my 3 year old ballerinas. We tip- toe through the puddles, we jump in the puddles and splash our friends, and we even roll in the puddles and get all muddy. I think this place really encompasses imagination, movement qualities, ballet vocabulary, and movement that is good for the brain and the body. I try to incorporate all of these into every part of the class. After we have rolled in the mud, we take a pretend shower to wash off all the mud. It is a great way to review body parts. "wash your elbows, wash your neck!"

Since doing this dance, I have found a few dancers not want to do this dance because they don't want to get all muddy! They want to stay clean! So soo cute!

Want to do a dance that will put a smile on your face? Do this dance today! Do you do any dances about rain or mud or puddles? I would love to hear!


  1. I am so doing that tomorrow! That is such a great idea.

  2. YAY! thanks! Let me know how it works out for you! My kids love it! :)
