Listening and Movement for Children of all Ages.
In this video, the children dance a modified Kazotsky, do trans-lateral oom-pah pumps and lightning speed squish-the-bug turns in this exhilarating choreography to Trepak from the Nutcracker Suite by Tchaikovksy. The movements reflect repeated musical patterns in the AABA form, with a Russian flavor. There is also a play-along for Orff and rhythm instruments.
The Mozart Musical Workout is a series of funny and exhilarating movements that get kids moving and grooving to the great classics. We find the special rhythmic and melodic elements in classical music and express the music’s spirit in movement. The kids might feel jumpy, like aliens are invading their bodies or lovely like they’re skipping through the grass or muscular like weightlifters. While getting exercise, the kids activate their imaginations as they create monsters, fish, rabbits, and more.
The Mozart Musical Workout also works great in a non-music classroom for movement breaks in the morning, middle and end of the day wrap-ups.
