How many kids at your church participated in the annual Christmas Extravaganza Program of Awesomeness (aka Children’s Choir?) I’ve seen some pretty amazing Christmas events led by our smallest singers. What better way to continue the fun as kids learn to sing and dance as a part of Zip for Kids in the Musical Performance track?
This track includes plans for 5-1 hour sessions of Musical Performance, focusing on learning a song and dance to perform for parents and all those who attend Zip for Kids. Kids will do fun warm ups, write their own songs, learn a song with motions to perform, and play games that teach musicality. This track is a great addition to an arts camp or day camp experience, and can even be used as your children’s choir plans!
Zip Tips for Using Musical Performance
- Prepare a time for kids to perform what they have learned. Invite parents and use that opportunity to connect with parents that you might not see very often.
- Encourage teachers to build discipleship relationships as they teach. Choose teachers who are passionate about singing, motions, and dance and equip them to build relationships with kids around those common interests.
- Make sure your teacher has the instruction and demonstration videos for the track time so that they can learn the song and dance routine prior to the start of Zip for Kids.
- Create a green room, use bright stage lights, and give kids a “backstage” tour to make the experience even more special for that kid who is passionate about singing, dancing, and performing!
