Today we continued with some assiko rhythms in drumming class, and there were fewer students now that the Brades kids are back in their usual location (we’re coming to you on Friday!) so everyone was able to focus more. We even had to play the rhythm one at a time! The kids did a great job echoing the rhythm back.
The Irish dance class also worked better with fewer students, and we were able to get through a céili dance with advance/retire, switching places with 7s and 3s, right and left hand turns, and the always difficult “waves” from the Waves of Tory dance. There were some collisions (as expected), but we finally got it!
The important thing to remember is that social dancing is a team activity, so even if someone messes up, we have to keep going and we can fix any problems the next time. There’s no time or space for doing your own individual thing, so it’s important to be considerate of others at all times. And be patient with each other!
