For today’s short 42 minute lesson, we will be learning how to complete a basic Dot Drill referred to as the ‘Up and Back.’ Dot Drills are a fun way to not only to increase eye-foot coordination, speed, agility, and balance…but to compete with each other (and with yourself) to see how many repetitions you can get in 1 minute. An added bonus is that drills will no doubt increase your effectiveness on a dance floor; trust me, I know from experience. Later this semester (or today, if we have time), we will learn some of the more advanced / higher skill dot drills which will include the ‘Turn Around,’ ‘Around the World,’ ‘Right Foot,’ ‘Left Foot,’ and ‘Both Foot’ drills. Here’s some of these drills in action!
