Cat-Like Reflexes: The Movie
Posted June 9, 2012on:
So did you try my solo exercise the other day? The description is here if you haven’t read it. After I wrote it, it ended up sounding so complicated that I thought I’d try to make a video of it too, in case anybody got desperately confused.
For a first attempt at making a video, it didn’t come out too bad. I messed up a couple of times toward the end, but I think you’ll get the idea.
Does that resemble anything that you were picturing?
Please keep in mind that I am neither a persuasive performer nor a top-notch teacher, merely an avid amateur. If you try to follow the video, you’ll notice that around 4:45 I have a major malfunction, do some totally irrelevant stuff, and then finally get back on track at around 5:20. So just ignore that section. I would have taken it out, only I’m also not a very good video editor
Anyway, like I said, all the variations keep getting more and more complicated. But drills like this help you learn to make quick weight changes and direction changes. You have to keep everything small and efficient to not get tangled up in your own feet, and it takes a bit of concentration as well. So it’s good for you.
Dance nerd that I am, I also happen to think it’s a lot of fun. What do you think?
