—Direction—Definition of Space

This study features size of spring: the more time spent in the air, the higher the jump, the less time, the lower. The big jump in meas. 1 may well be a spring from two feet to two feet. In meas. 5-8 the quick springs could be just small runs punctuated by a bigger spring on count 3. Note that the take-off support and the landing support indi cations have been carefully placed in the measure to indicate correctly the beat on which they occur. However, the general movement pattern together with the music will draw the performer into the correct rhythms without a need for analysis of timing.
