JUMPSTYLE Hopping part Single Jump 05
HOPPING PARTS are well suited for a short input about "cognitive skills with music".
Jumpstyle is danced alone or in groups. The dancers either perform the "duo jump" next to each other or the "duo kick" opposite each other. Jumpstyle can be used as a part of warm-up. Jumping in general is important for your health (bone density).
- Experience with movement and music
- Examples from the category: "Short Dances"
Tips for implementation:
- Different forms of organisations add variety and take some pressure off the teacher as the "presenter".
- Pay attention that the hops are done in "the correct way" and that calf muscles are stretched after a longer sequence.
- Play some music during the practice phase (motivation). The sound volume can be varied.
- Putting together 2-3 movements can already result in a small combination suitable for a class.
- Students can show their own moves related to the theme that they either already know or have created or arranged within their groups.
- Dance "Freestyle" in a group with no choreography or sequence of steps.
Tips relating to the music: further information can be found under the heading "Tips & methods" > Music
- For this example, several different music pieces are suitable. A clear rhythm with between 120 -140 beats per minute (BPM) is helpful.
- Good, motivating music is very important. Use songs that are currently popular every now and then. Bring faster and slower music to the lesson. These add variety and motivation to lessons.
