Notations for Dance Steps

Having only the notations is pretty slim help for learning a new dance, but for many of us having learned it without having notes is also not enough to do a second time without the teacher.

People have tried to establish some ways of noting the dance steps so we can all learn on our own.

Here are some suggestions.

I’m learning how to use notation as some of the songs we’ve choreographed have not been “written down.”

Andy Bettis’ articles are worthwhile as well as humorous.

NOTATION

 

Now what I would find helpful is the names of the various steps.

Google just helped me to learn that cha kaseya is two words not one.
