A lead dancer improvises movement within a set number of beats, and the other dancer(s) repeat the same movements directly after. Dancers continue to lead and follow with new movements exploring the B.E.S.T. elements.
Students who are developing physical control can begin dancing in a seated position. Movements can start small, with head arms, hands, and fingers. For beginning students, the teacher can be the leaders, and students followers.
Students may take on the role of leader in small groups. Movement prompts may come from a variety of inspiration beyond the music itself. A structure of rotating leaders can be established.
