Dance ED Tip #17:
How to quickly transition from center exercises to going across the floor
1. Students know that I want them to each have 2 turns on the first side and then 2 on the other side.
2. The older and more advanced the dancers are, the more quickly they should be able to reverse the combination. For more novice dancers I will give them 1-2 minutes to work with a friend to figure it out. For my advanced dancers they must go immediately.
3. Students know that if they want to get an additional try they can go with the last group across the floor. This allows students who may have made a mistake to try again and reach mastery.
