Posted:This space is for all those funksters busy improving their technique by learning new moves - made-up or traditional.



Tell us all about it! We love hearing about our fellow poiers/staffies/misc. toyers succeeding with new things biggrin

It's just hard to keep up with it all sometimes, so if we keep it together you'll be certain to get a little feedback.



here a pat on the back in advance from me

Posted:two to the left on left foot, one to the right on right foot.



gonna try for three up double pirooets today.



i reckon if i can get that then 5 up pirouettes cant be too far behind.



nice one on 62. i think once you get past the 40-odd barrier you're starting to understand how to correct. and so soon will be getting hundreds( was up to 3hundred odd before i censored my wrist, my progression went something like this 40, 42, 45, 85, 90, 98, 138, 245, 300). looking forward to getting on with 7 when i'm proply juggling again, except i gave away 5 of my juggling balls. got any spare floozies? princesses don't count wink

A kiss blown is a kiss wasted, the only kind of kiss is a kiss tasted.

I'm a woman. We don't say what we want, but we reserve the right to be pissed off if we don't get it. That's what makes us so fascinating and not just a LITTLE bit scary.

Posted:3-beat handcuff weave with double staff (a 3-beat weave where you can keep your wrists together)

10 foot neck catches (throw the staff up in the air, and put your neck between it and the ground). Well, I can do about 1 in 5, and the other 4 leave bruises wink
