Federica Panicucci

 

On Thursday December 4th, 2014 Monica Martucci and Valentina Peschier, invited by the television show Pomeriggio Cinque presented by Federica Panicucci and Federico Novella, had a conversation on the practice of dance for children and teenagers. The conversation highlighted the importance of dance in the psycho-physical development during the years of growth and on the toning qualities on an adult body, other than on the careful attention that parents should pay to when choosing the right dance school, guiding their children towards a suitable environment both for its structure and teaching skills. The minimal structures required are a flexible wooden floor that avoids the possibility of micro-fractures or inflammations during training. Ideally it shouldn’t be shiny and could be covered in rubber to guarantee the right grip and avoid slipping while practicing exercises. Double-height horizontal barres are important to allow students to practice exercises with the support needed at any age. Mirrors, to control and correct the posture. The expertise of the teachers should be proved by a curriculum of documented experience or by certificates issued by artistically valuable institutions, since teaching, especially to children and teenagers, should involve the knowledge of pedagogy notions too.
