Great dances and easy to learn
This book contains a variety of circle dances that can be used with all ages and grades. Most dances have ideas for differentiation to allow students of all abilities to participate and find success.
Fun and engaging lessons
Phylis Weikart does an amazing job with this book! There are so many different dances from all different origins that go along with different styles of music. There are dances ranging from beginner to more advanced levels or experience. Each dance has a step-by-step guide to the different movements, how many beats each step takes, which feet you move and which direction you are moving in. The back of the book has a glossary of dance and movement-specific terms you see used throughout the book. I am a K-8 General Music teacher and this is one book I feel like I could use in every class I teach. It is well worth the money and I am glad I discovered it.
