    Poor substitute for creativity., December 29, 2001
    This review is from: 101 Dance Games for Children: Fun and Creativity with Movement (SmartFun Activity Books) (Paperback)

    This is a very superficial activity book. Not only are the activities in it not very engaging, but most of the descriptions are very poorly worded. This is at best a guide for those dear people who think “dance” is for an elite class of people. You would be better off just teaching P.E. if this is what you consider creative. Better by far is a book called “First Steps in Teaching Creative Dance to Children” by Mary Joyce.

    Don’t waste your money on this!

    I work with many children as well as have 4 children of my own, and this book was pretty good. Some of the games were not worth listing… but some others are very good. I got some good dance games out of it. All in all worth having!

    This book’s activities are poorly described as well as being just plain corny. I cannot imagine the children I work with wanting to jump in and do these excersizes. Even in the spirit of pure play, I find these activities boring and silly (and not silly in a good way). If the activities had more depth, I could then use them to open up into a discussion or exploration. However, with the exception of a few, their relevance was insignificant. I cant see how any of these activities would break down walls, establish trust, inspire children to create, or even bring up a subject worth exploring, etc.
