The layering system of Figure 8 includes FOOT action first, BODY action second, and ARM action third. Each layer of choreography is introduced to the class, one by one, and in that order. Each new layer, increases the section’s difficulty. Therefore, when teaching beginner-level participants, the instructor should use the basic layer (foot work or body action), and repeat it until roughly 80% of the students have mastered the skill.
