ALTERNATIVE DANCE ARRANGEMENTS

Below are some alternative dance steps…


General Guidance:

  • Feel free to take shorter steps that are closer together.

  • Instead of raising and lowering heels on the branle step, why not try swaying from side to side. This will keep the characteristic swaying of the move without too much movement of the ankles and feet.

  • If you do not wish to hop, perhaps raise the leg instead, or even just point the foot out in front of you.

  • If you wish, slow your steps down and perform them at half of the speed.


Some guidance for dancing in a wheelchair:

  • You may want to move forward a shorter distance with a simple step, and move a larger distance for a double step.

  • For sideways moving steps, you could perhaps turn yourself slightly to the left and right.

  • To show off embellished steps such as hops, you can demonstrate the essence of the step with the movement of the upper body, and move with more vigour. 


If you have any questions or suggestions for other steps, feel free to get in contact.
