What is the attention span of a 4 year old like?

I am teaching dance to a group of 4 year olds and I have never worked with that age group and don't know how to prepare for the class.

Four-year-olds can typically focus on one activity for 10 to 15 minutes. A child that age likes to play follow the leader and enjoys challenges that involve running, skipping, jumping and balancing. Lead the class in a series of movements, such as hopping like a bunny or turning in a circle and build from there.

It is very short and they are easily distracted. If you make it more of a game and have them take turns, you should be able to work with a large group.
