Bow Belinda (Cut Common)

This partner dance is great for:

  • Dancing and co-ordination!
  • Working with melodic sequence.
  • Teaching the melodic element 'fa' (with the last line of the song).
  • Teaching the rhythmic element 'tum ti' (dotted crotchet, quaver / dotted quarter note, eighth note.)
