Take an exciting musical journey of folk song and dance traditions to all corners of the globe. Learn how to do an Israeli circle dance, the German Schottische, the Brazilian Samba, folk dances from Austria, Russia and Mexico, an African welcome dance, and even country line dancing from the U.S.A! Read about these rich cultures in engaging student articles written at an age-appropriate level, and experience their music through folk songs and easy-to-learn dance steps that are kid-friendly. The value-packed resource features reproducible articles and songsheets with lyric translations, exceptional standards-based lesson plans complete with lyric pronunciations, assessment and extension activities and piano/vocal arrangements with choreography. The price of this book also includes a unique code that provides access to audio tracks online, for download or streaming. The tracks include PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right - available exclusively from Hal Leonard. There are even recorded pronunciation guides. And there's more! A DVD is also available (separately or in the classroom kit) with visual instruction for each dance as demonstrated by John Jacobson and a group of young students. We've got a lot of miles to cover, so let's get started! Available: Book/Online Audio, DVD, Classroom Kit (Book/Online Audio, DVD). Suggested for Grades 3-6.
