Posted:Here's a fun one I just figured out. When doing a 5-beat weave, on the intermediate rotation (I know, that's a lousy description--I mean the one before your wrists twist around each other) separate your hands and make a giant swing at your sides (elbows locked straight, wheeling at the shoulders) Bring the hands back together and let the wrists wrap up as usual and cross over. Repeat.
It's a little tricky keeping your chains' trajectories right, but it can be done. And actually, when you separate your hands, you can do anything, not just a giant swing.
Posted:Actually, I tend to do the 5-beat faster than other moves, and I slow way down on the giant swing (my preferred style is pretty slow), so I don't really think the speedup is an issue for me.
I like using giant swings to punctuate breaks in the music.
Credit where it's due: a friend of mine, Lisa, taught me how to insert a giant swing when turning from a fwd 3-beat weave to a reverse--I call this a "giant lower fountain," a very cool-looking move. It was really by extrapolating from that that I figured out this move.
