“Shake Hands, now move to the next one!”Posted by Megan Kirk
Students in second grade have been working on their folk dancing! Dance is an extremely important element of music class. It helps students feel and move to music. We have been learning many new dance steps that take a lot of focus, working as a team and of course listening and feeling the beat of the music. One of the more difficult steps has been our circle weave. Students have four beats to “Shake hands, now move to the next one.” We started by learning the basic count of the step, then added the words to help students know where they were going. After we were comfortable with the steps, it was time to just hear the music and feel the four beat patterns on their own! We had to keep practicing, but finally we all were able to successfully get all the way around the circle!
