TUESDAY LEVEL III: September Parent Update

TUNE: The Sally Gardens


PERCUSSIVE SKILL: Keeping the downbeat

  • Where is the downbeat in our basic? (on the 3)
  • ...shuffle hop back? (on the 1 and the 3)
  • ...shuffles? (shuffles use eighth notes, with the quarter note feet alternating feet)  
  • ...runs?   (runs use quarter notes, same foot on the quarter note beats)

TRADITIONAL STEPS: Devane Timing (Shuffles back, basics, runs, shuffles) 

Hello, World!


We have been improvising with only timing steps but without music to give us some grounding in our improvs that DO have music!
