Each week we attend Wiggly Woo – a fun music and dance class for 1-5 year olds. Last term Immy’s favourite dance was the ‘plate dance.’
It’s a wonderfully, simple idea – all of the children and adults are each given two plastic plates to use as cymbal-like percussion instruments as the Can Can music is played.
It is amazing the effect this produces as we all clap the plates together to the music – fast, slow, softly, loudly, behind our backs, under our legs, above our heads, and you can also rub them together to produce a totally different sound. It’s awesome and the kids LOVE it!
Here’s the music if you’d like to try it yourself…
Or try a bit of Mozart! It’s fun too.
Who would imagine that the humble plastic plate could be so musical. I urge you to give this a try at your house, playgroup or at childcare – I promise you’ll have fabulous fun.
