I Have a student that gets VERY excited to dance, so much so he just can’t control himself. He lets out loud screams and runs to the mirror to make funny faces. Help! What can I do to ground him? I want him to stay excited, but I want him to focus a little better so the other students are not distracted.
Try lots to deep hugs before moving into activities that involve full body movement. Also, you may want his buddy apply steady deep pressure to his shoulders (pressing down and towards the center). I hope that helps!
