Rhythms and Dances for School Age Kids 

by Susan Kramer

Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Rhythms and Dances for School Agel Kids by Susan Kramer

In 100 pages for grades K - 12, 16 basic rhythmic dance steps, in order of difficulty, are illustrated, described and combined into 9 little dances; 18 sequencing combinations; and 4 more advanced group dances - for kinesthetically learning about basic math, sequencing, and language phrasing and rhythms.

All the basic rhythms are described in detail and illustrated with photos and drawings.

Parts I, II, and III are for elementary and middle school, and Part IV is suitable for high school levels.

Dances can be adapted using a partner or assistant for special needs students.

The large dances in Part IV are also appropriate for adults wanting fun and rhythmic exercise.
