1, 2, Beki 2 – South-Africa

One-two-beki Africa S-Africa Skipping game No props N.o.p.: 3 +
A very popular jumping game is skipping. The girls who are turning the rope have to be very cooperative in rotating the rope, otherwise the girl in the middle can’t jump properly. In the rhythm of the text they move their hands so that the jumping girl concentrates on a special way of skipping. With her (mostly) barefoot she lets the rope come under her feet while standing on her heels, immediately followed by a quick move so that the rope goes under her heels and she continues jumping. Then she makes a turn and jumps backwards to the rope in the same way. When she also succeeds doing this, she makes a half turn and lets the rope touch her ankle and then she fastly jumps on. These ways of skipping needs a lot of skill and training before you know how to do it.
