Pass To Dance Class is a video program for Teachers and Parents to get our kids active in a fun, current and socially-relevant way.
Pass To Dance Class was developed to fill three goals: P.E./Rainy Day Recess alternative, creative incentive to keep school cool, and to get kids dancing. The program and routines have been developed by Tamaira "Miss Tee" Sandifer through years of teaching at her studio, Studio T Urban Dance Academy in Sacramento, CA.
As schools are slowly removing PE programs and PE teachers are becoming scarce; Pass To Dance Class gives Teachers and Parents the ability to get their students and children moving in an effective way. Teachers will be enabled to replace diminishing physical education with high-tempo, repetitive hip hop flavored dance moves designed to get the blood flowing.
Home school teachers and parents can implement this program as the physical activity component of their educational curricula. The techniques taught in the program are fun, age-appropriate and engaging. The children will identify with what they learn because every lesson features socially relevant content that they want to learn.
The program will also bolster student involvement in their school's culture by providing choreographed, current, culturally-relevant dance steps and routines that the students can learn and perform at school events. Experience has shown that these types of performances build confidence and grow student and parent involvement.
The third component of the program are the Brain Breaks. Brain Breaks are short, rapid, in-seat movements intended to get the child's blood flowing so they can refocus their minds during intense lesson time.

Physical Education programs are slowly disappearing in America and this program will enable teachers to re-insert physical activity into their classroom culture. The program will be equally relevant to teachers and parents.
Do you have a school function or event where a student-performed dance presentation would be appropriate? One aspect of our curriculum is to provide professionally-choreographed dance-routine instruction for students to perform in front of their peers.
Studies have shown that occasional breaks in deep concentration (such as that in the classroom) can help students re-focus quickly and completely. The program will provide direction on how to teach students short, rapid movements to get their blood flowing. All without leaving their seats.
