Game Instructions

Itororó is a circle game. Kids sing and walk in a circle holding hands. You can alternate movements following the musical form, such as: go around to the right and to the left, go back and forward.

On "ó Mariazinha, ó Mariazinha", you have to switch "Mariazinha" for a kid's name like "John". So, John goes to the middle of the circle and starts a dance while singing the final sentences: "Sozinha(o) eu não fico nem hei de ficar, porque eu tenho a XXXX para ser meu par" choosing another kid (XXXX) to take the middle place.
