    Originally posted by Jennifer Kasper on have several students that can execute the movements fine, but cant find/stay on the beat to save their lives. I have been struggling with how to teach something that I think is intuitive. I have had them count and clap to the beat, I have them count out loud while they are dancing, and I have even tried having them dance to a metronome. Any suggestions on teaching students to find/feel the beat of the music and how to especially how to find the 1?br/br/Thanks,br/Jenn



    Originally posted by rhiannyn on been waiting for someone to respond, because i sometimes have the same problem are some thoughts, and some of the things ive been doing to try to make it become clearer:br/br/1. try to use the same couple of pieces of music during class, rather than a varietybr/2. encourage them to just listen to the music on their own, away from the studio, and trying to find the 1, and the phrasing in those couple of songs... then to bring it back to class to show youre probably already doing this one.... show them where it is, repeatedly, with a simple move like Pivot Bump, or Arabic... stand there tapping it out with your foot, zil, and counting it, gearing up for it and then BOOM on the 1 start the move. repeat. i really CLAP the zil on my right hand on the 1, and then go softer for the other hope some others join in here with other suggestions 🙂
