Last year I discovered two brilliant podcast series geared towards younger students involved in dance and fundamental movement units.  The episodes which appear weekly are produced by the BBC and available to everyone worldwide for free via number of channels. If your unfamiliar with how podcasts work I suggest you check out this video

The most exciting aspect of these podcasts is that they combine simple dance elements with storytelling in a completely engaging manner. A simple way to make them available for your students is via subscription within the Podcasts App or to download them your computer as MP3. You might also like to check out the mobile web app I built last year to house all the series (Visit it on your mobile device)
