We bend down low to tap on the floor and reach up high to tap in the sky.
Then we tap to the left and tap to the right.
However we move, the batons give us greater motion - wider - faster and harder. They allow us to tap with the beat of the music. We stick around a little longer - the batons give us insentive to stay in the action. We can conduct the music and lead the band. What can I say - the batons simply add to the fun!
