Hopping Dance

Lyrics

(Slovakian folk song)

Once and twice and hop hop hop,
Turn around together once before you stop,
Once and twice and hop hop hop,
Turn around together once before you stop.

Tra la la la la la la la,
La la la la la la la la la la la,
Tra la la la la la la la,
La la la la la la la la la la la.

Dance

Partners face each other.

Measures 1-2: “Once” – kick left foot out
“twice” – kick right foot out
“hop hop hop” – kick left, right, left

Measures 3-4: Hold right hands and walk around in a circle, returning back where they started on the word “stop.”

Measures 5-8: Repeat measures 1-4.

Measures 9-16: Partners hold both hands and gallop to the right with a small hop on beat one of each measure.
