Posted:yo,

basically its a plane change carry,, remeber how poipoipoi was saying you can make 90 degree plane shifts by quickly moving your hand at the right time? e.g. to go from forwradrs side plane to ceiling plane you move your hand to the middle of the cieling plane circle when the poi reaches the top of the side plane circle. where the two planes intersect. you can have a look at the original thread here .

well, to go from backwards to forwrads in 1 beat, you do a 90 degree shift to the ceiling plane, then after half a circle of ceiling plane you do another 90 degree shift back down to side plane. voila, your going forwrads.

errm. shout at me that you dont understand and ill come back and try again....

Posted:Yeah i use the 90 degree change someimes - mainly to transition from windmills into corkscrews into weaves. Also for butterflies from wall to ceiling planes, but haven't tried from wall plane to side planes(mainly cause butterflies dont look like much from side on.) but would be good if you had an audience all the way around you...

I've played about with the 180 degree change as you describe here but tend not to use it. From the audience's POInt of view if you change direction using a normal turn you end up facing the opposite way - which 'usually' doesnt matter. using the 180 deg plane change you stay facing the same way... i try to do all my moves on both sides in both directions so i dont have to worry about which way i'm facing if i want to transition into a move.
But i suppose some i prefer one way than another. maybe i should practice this some more.....
no wait.... i just remembered i use this move somewhere & helps alot... but... can't.... remember.....which......one....... ubbrollsmile

Posted:yeah.. I've called it plane splitting.. not because it was an appropriate name.. just because it feltlike I was breaking the planes when I did it.. but I mostly used it in wraps as a way of getting from some wrap points to others without spinning circles or hitting the other poi.. also for changing the poi that leads when boucnign wrap patterns..

Posted:no actually i change my mind... it's kindof effective if your spinning one way then give your arms a little flick & suddenly your spinning in the opposaite direction...

Posted:Interesting... So if I'm butterflying I just take my right hand and do a circle above my head clockwise looking up (like a lasso) and then drop it down in front of me and now they're both going clockwise and I turn my body to the left and I'm doing a reverse weave.

I think I get it.

Where are poi when you need them?! mad


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:i think cos it would be half a horizontal circle less into the plane transition if you drop it behind?

also it makes it easier to have one in front one behind so you don't immediately have to start a weave motion.

unless i don't get this at all ubblol wink
