Dance as a Means of Introducing Asymmetrical Meter
Keywords:folk dance, southeastern Europe, meter pedagogy
In this essay, I offer resources for teaching two contemporary folk dances from southeastern Europe, taking advantage of students' capacity for imitation and embodiment to introduce skills and concepts connected with asymmetrical meter. After a few preliminary notes about meter, I describe how an instructor could go about teaching pravoto, a dance from North Macedonia, and then suggest several options for continuing the lesson.
