El circo del sol

    En próximas fechas vamos a comenzar una Unidad Didáctica titulada «El circo del Sol». Probablemente hayáis oído hablar de este espectáculo ya que es muy conocido en el mundo entero. Básicamente lo que hacen consiste en crear coreografías en la que un grupo de acróbatas o malabaristas tienen que coordinar unos movimientos utilizando unos materiales y adaptándose a una música. Algo parecido es lo que vamos a hacer nosotros. Haremos grupos, elegiremos unos materiales, utilizaremos una música determinada  y con todo ello crearemos una pequeña coreografía. Como una imagen vale más que mil palabras, aquí tenéis algunos ejemplos de lo que estamos hablando.

Baseball is the national game of theUnited States, because it is the most popular sport there. It is played by people of all ages.

The team that scores the most runs (when a batter goes through the bases and home) wins the game.

The pitcher in the defender team throws the ball towards the batter, a player on the attacking team.

The batter tries to hit the ball into the field. If he hits the ball he then runs around the bases.

The defenders in the field try to put him out.

Batters and runners can be put out in many ways.

The catcher tries to catch the ball thrown by the pitcher when the batter doesn´t want to hit the ball or can´t hit it.

The umpire decides if the ball thrown by the pitcher went through the right zone (over the base and in between the knees and shoulders of the batter).

Juggling is a skill involving moving objects for entertainment or sport. The most recognizable form of juggling is toss juggling, in which the juggler throws objects up to catch and toss up again. This may be one object or many objects, at the same time with one or many hands. Jugglers often refer to the objects they juggle as props. The most common props are balls .

In our lessons we will try to improve our skills by following this process:




1 ball

1- Toss the ball with one hand and catch it with the same hand.  0,25
2- Toss the ball with one hand and catch it with the opposite hand. 0,5
3- The same exercise with the other hand  1

2 balls, one ball in each hand

4- Toss the ball with one hand and take it with the opposite hand. While the ball is in the air you pass the other ball and toss it with the same hand. 2
5- The same exercise with the other hand.  3
6- Toss the ball with one hand and catch it with the same hand. Just now throw the other ball with the opposite hand. Balls don´t cross. 4
7- Similar to the last one but throwing the ball before catching the previous one. 5
8- Similar to the last one but now balls cross in the air so each ball is caught with the opposite hand. 6
9- One ball in each hand. They are tossed at the same time and they are caught with the same hand. Balls don´t cross. 7
10- Similar to the last one but now balls are caught with the opposite hand so balls cross in the air. 8
Two balls in the same hand
11- Toss one ball and quickly throw the other one so that we can catch the first ball with the same hand. 8,5
12- Similar to the last one but now you have to  be able of performing the exercise quickly in a rotary pattern. 9

3 balls
