Step Lively 3: Primary Dances

Themes & Variations


At long last - the book you've all been asking for, the third Step Lively by Marion Rose! Twenty-eight dances and singing games for children in the primary grades. Some of the dances are traditional, some are adaptations, and some are created by the author to teach specific folk dance skills.

Step Lively 3 features the same musical crew and illustrator as the first two books in the series, and the music is once again irresistibly danceable. The dance descriptions are clear and explicit, so that teachers can use them with confidence and with a minimum of preparation.
