The Cycle-Transitions and Putting It All Together

The Cycle consists of the following pattern: 3-6-3 to 6-6 to 1-10-1 to 3-6-3.

The 6-6

  • Demonstrate and review the 6-6 using the 3-2-1 method.
  • Stackers practice upstacking and downstacking the 6-6.
  • Walk around and check for proper stacking technique.
  • Demonstrate and practice together as a class.
  • Play a fitness activity using the 6-6.

The Two Transitions

  • 3-6-3 to 6-6:
    • All upstack a 3-6-3.
    • Back to the beginning and downstack a 3-6-3. Stop.
    • Using one hand, downstack this last three and bring it over to the first 3-Stack.
    • Using the 3-2-1 method, upstack the first 6-Stack, then the second 6-Stack.
    • Repeat several times. Call out cues and keep everyone together.
  • 6-6 to 12 cup column:
    • Downstack the first 6-Stack keeping three cups in each hand.
    • Use the cups in your hands to downstack the second 6-Stack.
    • Two moves - slide out and pop on center, ending in one column of 12 cups.
    • Repeat with the second transition several times.
  • Putting It All Together:
    • Now combine ALL of the above (3-6-3 to 6-6 to 1-10-1 to 3-6-3).
  • Practice several times.
