…train a children dancing group?
Training kids is not just training kids. You have to be a role model, a big sister, in general: someone to look up to. You have to be strict, but relaxed; you have to be motivated and energetic, but patient.
Rebeka is training a group of young girls, between 9 and 13 years now for around four years. “During these years the kids had a lot of performances, where I had to prepare them for, besides this me and the “Majorettes Trbovlje” uploaded various videos to YouTube.” Every training is structured round about the same: It starts with a warm-up, continues with some dance steps and tricks with baton and ends with learning and practicing new routines. As older the girls get, the harder the dance moves will be. For Rebeka the girls are something special: “For their age they are really grownup; even if I feel that they are excited before our performances, they act really adult and don`t show their nervousness that much.” She adds: “During the training they are always really disciplined and there are no problems at all!” Rebeka trains her “Majorettes Trbovlje” like she would train adults. Because of their discipline and maturity she doesn’t even need games or other activities to keep them focused. “I feel really connected to the girls”, Rebeka tells us.
For the future the team wants to focus on YouTube. The biggest wish is it to get a professional camera to have a higher quality and to be able to upload better videos.
