THE DOLLIES' DANCE
This little dance is more of a frolic than a song, and is a very happy way of giving the little ones, some of the first lessons in dancing.
First of all, the children stand in a row, and catching hold of their frocks, if girls, point first one foot, and then the other, in time to the music, singing the"la, la," as archly and gaily as possible. The first and fourth beat of the last bar but one, must be sharply emphasizedby the voice, and by a stamp of the foot.
Where there are children enough to do this song-dance in rows of eight, eight rows make a charming number. Four is the lowest number -that can do it. It should be done withasmuch gaiety and frolic as possible.
