This little dance is charming for its speed and abandon. It is a game with an imaginary ball, which dancers bounce, toss and catch.

A swift lightness, especially on the hop following the run, is extremely important. The hop must be light and high, with head and arm up. Ankle strength and flexibility is necessary for light and fast foot movement. This is especially true in the run and hop in this dance.
