I personally find that balancing is a hard skill to master at any age. My young students constantly fumble over their feet while they learn to control their cores and I find its even a challenge for my older kids to apply their balance while dancing, especially in turn sequences! I started playing this little game with my juniors to help maintain a straight line with chains turns and MAN did it explode! Now all my students love it and we have tried it will so many different tricks. What a game changer! Make it fun = THEY WILL COME!
