Topic 2 Conducting in 3

In conducting in 3 as conductors we show 3 beats per bar.

Waltzes are usually written in ¾ bar that show dancers to take the proper step of a waltz.       

Conducting in 3 is like drawing a triange   

Each corner of this triangle represents a beat.

We start from down, then outside  and finally up
