FEEL THE BEAT Dance Poems That Zing from Salsa to Swing

by | Read by Marilyn Singer

Children Ages 4-6 • 12 mins. • Unabridged • © 2017

Great music, sound effects--particularly of appreciative onlookers--and Marilyn Singer's spirited narration will have even the most confirmed non-dancer getting up to move to this music! Lively poems capture the beat of the dances described, inspiring beginners and more seasoned hoofers alike. Singer's lovely pronunciation adds atmosphere as she takes listeners to each dance's country of origin. Original music by Jonathon Roberts is the perfect addition to performances that range from hip-hop to the waltz, the square dance, and Bhangra. Singer closes with informative notes on the accompanying instruments and the traditions associated with each dance. For example, the hora is for Jewish celebrations, including bar and bat mitzvahs. Listeners will find her exuberant manner of counting beats delightful. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2017]
