"This first of two volumes of Dancing For Fun features descriptions of 12 dances, each of which requires no more than a couple of minutes to perform... Overall, it provides an accessible introduction to the art of dance that should particularly appeal to beginners."

Synopsis

"

Dancing is a universal and primal form of expression, and it is something we can all enjoy. What’s more, it’s a healthy and fun way to bring more exercise into our lives. Anyone, at any age, can enjoy group dancing, from very young children to senior citizens.



This guide presents a series of original group dances, inspired by both folk and contemporary dances. It focuses on dance as a way for anyone and everyone to engage in movement while having fun and interacting with others. Author Mark L. Greathouse, in collaboration with his wife, Helena, offers original piano compositions and professionally written choreography designed to match the music exactly. To further aid in learning the dances, this teaching tool also provides links to online videos demonstrating each dance and the music to go with it.



Improve your coordination, bring more movement into your life, and have fun with dancing! Dancing for Fun can show you how.



“I searched for ideas to help in developing my physical fitness lessons. I was introduced to Dancing for Fun, Book 1. My students and I had a lot of fun. It is a valuable resource.”

—Colleen Thompson, kindergarten teacher, Sherwood School District, Oregon"
