This Dynamic Warm Up, provided by Marching Health, is a great way to get the body ready for movement and should be a focus for students and staff before each marching rehearsal.

Marching + Movement: Endurance

This exercise, focused on the scaffolding of skills and building endurance, is a combination of hybrid exercises 1 & 2 as one larger phrase.

Assessment opportunity:
Students will create and perform exercise on camera using the provided UDBapp file. Video can be submitted for review by directors, staff, section leaders, or peers.

Exercise: Slow Tempo Creative Challenge

In this creative challenge, students are asked to create their own combination of movement and choreography using the skills covered in Modules 1-10.  Using the song in UDBapp titled M10: Slow Tempo Creative Challenge, each student’s performance should include (but is not limited to) the following:

4 total sets of marching
2 sets of choreography, one from any Module 10 slow tempo choreo, and one that they make up on their own

For example, a version of this exercise could be:
March forward in a left slide – 8 cts.
March backwards – 8 cts.
Slow tempo choreo 2 – 8 cts.
March forward in a right slide – 8 cts.
March in curved path to your starting point – 8 cts
Slow tempo choreo (created by the performer) – 8 cts.

These challenges are meant for the performer to exercise their full creativity as each performance structure should vary from person to person.
