DANCING WITH DELIGHT is a 78-page manual by Rebecca Kelly, co-founder of KIDS CO-MOTION, with a foreword by child psychiatrist Dr. David Brashear, of Thomas Jefferson Universtiy Hospital, Philadelphia, PA. It mixes commentary with anecdotal material, providing an insightful and pragmatic guide for anyone desiring to teach early childhood dance.  Conveniently arranged by easy to look up topics.

DANCING WITH DELIGHT is a handy reference for any teacher of young children.  Using the laboratory of the dance program, Kelly discusses early learning in the years beyond infancy and before school.  She reveals the experiences of families, both good and bad, funny and surprising, and from which a parent or adult will certainly recognize the child under one's own care.
