Posted:i was playing around and i am trying to get the hang of about 4 moves at the mo and then i went in to a mad thing where you do fwd butterfly on your right side bkw butterfly on the left hand side... as this (to me) seems impossible i seem to always go in to split time and although it looks REALLY cool i can only keep it going for about 7 beats before it all goes wrong...can anyone do this ... has it a name and any tips would be welcome...

Posted:When you say bwd butterfly on your left hand side do you mean a full 180 across the body from the right hand side? Sounds interesting... is there any turning of your body involved? Just last night I yanked an over-the-head (as in directly above my head -- think halo) backwards butterfly into a forward butterfly in front of my face... so I know reversing the butterfly is perfectly possible as long as it is reversed in its beat. I think in order to do what you are doing w/o splitting the timing you would probably have to be able to do a butterfly where your hands are swinging from left-right (possible?) to keep it in beat instead of up-down, then you could yank it across your body on a left/right swing. Hmm... well I guess I still have work to do on my butterflys afterall...

Posted:Yeah, thats a tight move. When I discovered it for myself, I was like: WHOA! What did I do? I started practicing it with one poi on each side of me swinging opposites. Then I just practiced bringing one around to the other and then one back out. Then alternate hands. You switch from for. to rev. depending on how you start. Now when I change through it, my hands dont separate at all, and it looks totally fluid. I just got the TTN to Rev. TTN transition going to, but its a lot harder...Happy spinning to all!------------------We are not physical beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a physical experience.~Edgar Cayce

Posted:I called that move a Butterfly Cross-flow, cuz I think it is very similar to the weave cross-flow (ie alternating fwd and bwd weave across the body laterally)...probly lots of other names, I cetainly wasnt the first to do it.Josh
