flying, dancing stingrays
The Amazing Flight of Little Ray sends a young stingray into the air for an unforgettable flight. Little Ray does not believe in limits. He plans to fly like a bird. He gyrates, twists and twirls into the great unknown.
Disco Ball? Returning to the big blue sea from the big blue sky gives him trouble. He'll need help to thunder back for another bounce from the ocean floor. Hurray for Little Ray! This young ray took the spin of a lifetime.
AN ANGEL SHARK?
rays, sharks, friendship
Little Ray & Shark Patch Things Up begins with a young ray conducting an underwater circus. His acrobatics get cheers from boating friends. When a lone, dark fin appears, Ray's friends try to escape.
Cutting In? The shark hits the boat, making a hole. While the boaters bail water, the shark returns to find Ray stuck to the hole as a patch. The shark grabs the anchor chain. As the boat nears shore, swimmers take off screaming.
armadillos, fun, facts
The Foxy Armadillos find an empty fox den for their family. Pa and Ma move in with their children Sis, Boom, and Ba. It seems to be a stroke of luck, until the farmers notice these critters have made themselves at home.
Night Club? Holes are everywhere. Not long ago, they had driven the fox away. What will they do to stop these digging pests? When the armadillos become the next target, the foxy children come up with a clever solution.
Learn to Dance the Stingray Shuffle with Little Ray.
Stingray Shuffle Dance:
Poster Boy? Little Ray draws friends to the beach with dance figures and adventure stories. Lead-and-follow twists and turns improve everyone's beach days. The above video shows the basics are simple and useful.
The Stingray Shuffle video does not form part of any Little Ray tale. Many of the animations were made from book illustrations. The tempo, progressions and hooks will lead to new dance patterns. The text follows:
Length: 32 Seconds.“Doing the stingray shuffle may improve our beach days. The vibrations scare off any unfriendly rays. Let's make the surf pound and rattle the ground with your choice of sound for our next go-round.”
Open Plan? The stingray shuffle may prevent injury and crippling pain. It scares away offensive angel sharks and defensive stingrays. Nobody relishes lock-step contact with these hazardous shark family members.
Maximum Impact? Pizard's GURPS Miscellanea tells about Angel Sharks. These “Sand Devils” ambush waders with mouths full of teeth. Their flattened bodies and dangerous defenses get them confused with stingrays.
Big Picture? Little Ray teaches friends to shuffle-step when entering and wading through water. Dancing stingrays would slap-step if they had feet. Angel sharks may scare rays more than humans. They snack on little rays.
Blurred Lines? A shuffling box step may frighten flat sharks. Half-buried bottom dwellers tend to flee rhythmic vibrations in water and sand. Gliding, flowing movements may prevent full weight transfers onto these menaces.
Rising dance platforms? Large stingrays can lift and topple unwelcome dance partners from their backs. With luck, there will be no encore and the stingers will graze rather than penetrate the victims.
Step by Step? Heavy strides may not avert injury from feather stepping onto buried stinging barbs. These parts get left behind by stingrays. After boogieing with Little Ray, bop into other ocean life features on his website.
Top Flight? Dancers can take to the air. Divers perform hurdle, twist and tuck routines from high and low diving boards or platforms into the deep ends of swimming pools. Check out the in-flight dances of Flying Stingrays.
Party Line? Tell everyone how to jive like dancing stingrays. Visitors to the ocean world of these shark relatives should learn how to flap-step. Little Ray's video may impede missteps. The techniques can be practiced on land.
Wonderland? Imagine repelling biters and stingers. Quickstep routines should not be performed around most species of sharks. Movements that intimidate flat sharks might attract fierce populations of carnivorous cousins.
Fine Print? Little Ray's seafaring books feature stingrays, sharks and armadillos. Partners may not observe Armadillo Landlubbers at the beach. Attributes of these swimming creatures are exciting, interesting and bold.

We cannot go wrong

As beach days improve,
we'll all feel the groove.
