Physical Education KS2: The 'stomp to retreat spin' in house dance

Turbo teaches a breakdown of the 'stomp to retreat spin' used in house dance.

Breaking down each step, Turbo demonstrates the move slowly with clear directions both on the right and left leg.

It's a high energy stepping sequence finishing with a full spin.

The full combination is then performed to the music at full speed.

This clip is from the BBC series, Street Dance Masterclass.

Teacher Notes

The movement can be broken down and incorporated into any dance piece, to add some high energy House style.

Teach slowly to start and allow pupils to build their speed.

This could be performed as a question and answer sequence, e.g. with pupils working in pairs and taking turns to perform.

Curriculum Notes

Exploring the art of street dance, this series will be relevant for teaching physical education and dance at primary level.
