Posted: Hi there,I don't post much in the move section cause it usually is too technical for me to understand the level of language. But... eeeer, dunno where to begin and how exactly I should describe what I want... but I'll give it a try anyway...If I spin one hand forward, one hand in reverse, can I do the weave or even the 5 beat weave ? I recently managed to do something which looked like a weave but a. it felt really weird and not "natural"b. couldn't see myself , but my guess is that it was maybe not worth all the bruises

Posted:I don't think it's possible, but you can do a "lateral butterfly" that is similar to what you are describing. Just start doing a regular butterfly, and rotate your body 90° while holding your hands in place. It is possibly to cross your hands in front of your body and do it on the other side--try crossing your hands separately at first, but eventually you'll figure out the timing to cross them together.

Posted:Hey Cassandra, It sounds to me like you're doing a Thread The Neadle weave (TTNW), which is very possible. If you spin one hand forward and one in reverse when you cross one over it will make a butterfly on that side. If you are doing a butterfly on your left side, cross your left hand across your body first followed one beat by your right hand, now bring your right hand back to your left side followed one beat by your left hand, now just repeat. It's 1 beat (circle) on it's own side and two beats (circles) on the opposite. See it yet. This would be my guess to what you are doing. I may be wrong, either way I'm sure what you are doing looks good, even if you don't know what it is.EricHappy late birthday Cassandra

Its about talent, not make up or costumes.

Posted:Ok, Ok .... Supe, you are right, in my mind it seemed doable, but never feels natural in practice.Adam, yes, I know what you mean and enjoy doing it allready, thank you.Myst, I know what you mean like a transition move from one butterfly to the other side. But it is not exactly what i meant (or is it ? I actually have to print this and then go home and then do what you are saying to see how similar it is...)thanks for trying to understand me though

Posted:yep,Its one of my favourites, So it better be possibleI commically call it "cross don't follow"You can do it in 2 different times, the thread the needle (push throughs) time is the one that is more unnatural If your board For fun, also try doing the reverse. so then you can do the equivalent of weave to reverse weave (cross-follow to reverse cross-follow). And if you still not had enough, its pretty sweat behind your backenjoy the head fuk and keep swinging Drew

Hey cool! Old skool butterfly weave conversations.

well, from 3 years ago anyway. Thats old skool for HoP.

and yet PoiboxII was saying the other day that there still isn't agreement on what exactly Butterfly Weave is..?

surely that can't be right.
