General Informations

In the 1980s, when electronic dance music became popular all over the world, a new form of raggae, the RAGGA (raggamuffin) was developed. In ragga, there are two different styles: A style with cooler moves that are strongly influenced by the Jamaican styles as well as a new style with more sex appeal and more tempo. This style incorporates street dance moves, Latin moves and many isolations. Target group: recommended level 4 (from age 13.)

Helpful prerequisites:

  • Experience with movement and music
  • Examples from the category: "Short Dances"

Tips for implementation:

  • It is also possible to use only parts of this sequence depending on the level of advancement of students
  • Different forms of organisations add variety and take some pressure off the teacher as the "presenter".
  • Play some music during the practice phase (motivation). The sound volume can be varied.

Further steps:

  • Additional movements from this area can be added   
  • Students can show their own moves related to the theme that they either already know or have created or arranged within their groups.
  • Possible exercise: While the girls are creating a short Ragga sequence, the boys, for example, can create a Hip Hop (Street dance, Breakdance) sequence.

Tips relating to the music: further information can be found under the heading "Tips & methods" > Music

  • For this example, several different music pieces are suitable. A clear rhythm with between 85 - 110 beats per minute (BPM) is helpful.
  • Good, motivating music is very important. Use songs that are currently popular every now and then. Bring faster and slower music to the lesson. These add variety and motivation to lessons.
