Build a Beach Fire Warm-up

This is a [Other] pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 11469)

I teach a dance aerobics class. This warm-up always gets rave reviews, but then again, I'm blessed with a very open-minded group.

I pick a piece of music that sounds exotic or Carribean in sound. You can always email me for music recommendations; I'm a HUGE collector of music.

Once the music starts I get the women (I teach at an all women's facility) to make a circle. I tell them to close their eyes and imagine they are at their favorite beach, in the water. We splash water on ourselves and move around like we're wading or swimming or whatever. I then guide them through building a beachfire. It comes out different each time but the general sequence follows. Just remember to set the tone using your own words and imagination:

Enjoy! This is really fun - picking good music is key and get the group going by making it high energy with big movements.

Again, you can email me with any questions or for music recommendations.
