I've stop spinning for quite a time and started with staff and just learned the windmill & one haded weave(figure 8), while i was practicing i tried to do a turn using the figure 8 and it worked, just wanted to share a beginners experience(haven't seen that in the staff lessons)

Yes, I love doing turning moves, they add a lot to a performance.The easiest way I've found to do it is by switching between forward and reverse weaves as you turn. It looks lovely once you get the foot work right.------------------If you love something, set it on fire.[This message has been edited by SickpuPpy (edited 01 January 2002).]

my favorite turns are catching on my foot and kicking it above my head (almost like a horizontal throw) and turning to catch it, also, spinning it behind my back to turn, or putting it between my legs and just turning after i pull it out------------------~ Tiger, Tiger, burning bright... ~

yeah, turning rocks and looks really squiffy from the audience's point of view. you can tilt it into horisontal as you turn too, great for running around.Nix

Try turning while you spin it horozontly around your neck. Turn with the staff, it does good!!!!

I actually do that. I have a whole combiation that starts out in a helicopter, goes into a neck wrap, into a waist wrap, back to a neck wrap, back to helicopter, to BTB helicopter, to neck wrap, to waist wrap/stall. And I'm turning through the whole thing. Looks the shit.------------------If you love something, set it on fire.
