This class, recorded live at the 2010 DSA National Conference in Cambridge, MA, was led by C. Fabian Bautz, Diploma Conservatory Munich.
As Bautz explains, "TaKeTiNa (created in 1970 and developed by Reinhard Flatischler, Austria) is, in many ways, completely different from Eurhythmics, although completely dependent upon rhythm."
"A central feature of TaKeTiNa is the simultaneous engagement of the hands (via clapping patterns), feet (via stepping patterns), and the voice (via syllables). The syllables and rhythm patterns merge the polyrhythmic movements of our body parts."
