Section 3

In the third section we are going to move in three different groups. You are in group 3 and you are seated in the left most chair:

This section is the most complex, so expect that it will take you longer to learn this section it took you to learn sections 1 and 2. Good luck!

Section 3 Part 1:

For part one of section three you are going to follow the “Ooh Aahs!,” with there being four “Ooh Aahs” in total. On the first “Ooh Aah!” you are going to do a side-to-side motion like this:

For part one of section three you are going to follow the “Ooh Aahs!,” with there being four “Ooh Aahs” in total.

  1. On the first “Ooh Aah!” you do a side-to-side motion

  2. On the second “Ooh Aah!” you are going to repeat this motion:

  3. On the third “Ooh Aah!” you are going to repeat this motion one more time:

  4. On the fourth “Ooh Aah!” your hands are going to go up on the “Ooh,” and then begin to shake, and come down, so that they are almost down by the “Aah!”

Set to music it will look like this:

Why don’t you try it:

When you feel comfortable with part one, move onto part 2.

Part 2:

While we used “Ooh Aahs” to structure our movement in part one, for the second part we will need to return to counting in order to time our movements. For the first two measures of eight we are going to be moving your arms frantically, in any way, any direction. For the next two measures of eight you are going to hold a different body part with each “Ooh Aah!” You can hold any body part you want as long as you are switching positions in time with the “Ooh Aahs!”.

All together this part will look like this:

Now that you’ve watched it, go ahead and try performing it with me. Make sure you are practicing counting as well as moving.

Finally, practice combining parts one and two of section three.

Part 3

The third part of section 3 begins as soon as you hear the xylophone, and for this section you will also need to count. When you hear the xylophone you are going to stay frozen in whatever position you where just in for two measures of eight. On the third measure of eight you stand up and you S your hands upward. On the fourth measure you sit down over the first four counts (1… 2… 3… 4…), and you pump your hands in the air over the last four counts (5… 6… 7… 8…). If you cannot stand up safely, perform the S of with your hands seated.

It will look like this:

Try performing it yourself:

Once you are comfortable with part three of section three you can move into practicing all of section three together:

Finally, once you feel confident you have section three down, you can combine it with sections one and two:
