DIY Dance: Alphabet Abs

LOIO AbsCreative Problem Solving

  • Begin sitting on the floor with the legs straight out in front – this is your “L” shape
  • Bring the knees into the chest and hug them with the arms, head tucked in – this is the “O” shape
  • Lengthen out the legs and lie flat on your back, arms overhead – this is the “I” shape
  • Practice moving from L to O to I, and back to O.
  • Try the LOIO pattern in different amounts of time, for example: 4 counts to get from one position to the next, then 2 counts, then just one count.
  • Let students create variations on the shapes and patterns, maybe an X or a Y!
