ANdANTe = Walking Speed
There once was an ANT named ANdANTe. He was a very cautious ANT, he never liked to run because he was afraid he might fall and get hurt. So ANdANTe WALKED everywhere. One day when he was out with his friends it started to rain and the other ants ran for cover, but not ANdANTe.
ANdANTe marched down to the ground to get out of the rain. (Tap walking speed on your lap as you sing to the tune of “The Ants Go Marching”) So if you spy ANdANTe remember to walk and not run!
