19 Sep The Brazilian Dance
The Brazilian Dance isn’t a game, it’s a dance which has been developed and transformed into a game. And it works, whatever age you are! Follow this simple tutorial to entertain the guests!
— As you can see I am holding a broomstick. Do you know what I’m going to use it for?
— It’s very easy, stand facing me in a single line, one behind the other. I will hold the broomstick very high and you will have to go under it dancing. After each new round, I will lower the broomstick so that it will get more and more difficult for you to go under. Understood?
— Yes !
— Here we go, let’s call for the music: “Music, music, music!” Stay in a single line and bend to cross under, one at a time.
Ask the children to go under the broomstick whilst looking up at the ceiling. Of course, the little ones (3, 4 or 5 years old) only go under the broomstick whilst looking at the ceiling on the first round. Afterwards, they will be happy to go under the broomstick! And at the end, they will certainly go over! But they will enjoy the game all the same.
If it becomes a scramble do not hesitate to stop them and settle them back one behind the other. Lower the broom down to ground level (8 to 10 cm from the ground). They love lying down on the floor and crawling.
This game works whatever age you are. But obviously, it is more understandable to go under the broomstick whilst looking up at the ceiling at 7 years old as opposed to 4 years old. We would say the same for the over 30s!
