Posted:indeed! Nx should defo play more with sticks, poi and contact, and less with the dreaded juggling....

I suppose it's a new move if you do continuous pivots (conveyor belt to halo to conveyor belt etc.) but replace the conveyor belt with a front angel roll? (the one that goes over your throat, not the proper one sandy can do.)

Then it becomes like continuous turning one way angel rolls, but alternating the halo with a throat wrap in the middle of the angel rolls.

Oh but my post about reverse lucero's is censored . It's not a reverse lucero though I'm fairly certain I now know what reverse lucero's actually is.... I'll need (help)to think that through.



Depends what you mean by reverse. Depends what you mean by lucero. Not really sure.

I've not learnt it yet, but someone should...



1:26 into her jaw droppingly good routine.



A possible variation on the same move pops up later on at 1:58 but is there performed as a throw.

ubblol

I managed to pull off at least two Jesuses in a row redface

And (I believe it's called) 'pivoting conveyor belts'?

Most of the new stuff I did over new years was due to having indoor practice space bigger than a broom cupboard and outdoor space that isn't either waterlogged or populated by smackheids...

Posted:No Preston is FAR FAR worse!

Edinburgh seemed like a nice old small town - just bigger... And apparently full of spinners so it's nothing new to them.

In Preston - the chav-quotient is almost unbearable...
They have only JUST started organising fire meets in Preston! The next one is tonight! smile In a waterlogged park... frown

Posted:after looking through what i've written in this thread, i've realised i can no longer do or conceptualise a lot of the stuff i've put down!! which is a bit wierd, how can you spend so long doing something to not have a clue what you were on about a month later?!?!
does anyone else suffer from this disease? (it could be a green one wink )
do you guys have 'rules' to what is a down move?
also, anyone fancy a visitor for a staffing weekend? return visits to cornwall are available...

Posted:Yea i get that problem, thats why i have a book with staff moves in it, nicked the idea off meg, very useful.
In terms of rules, id say its fairly loose, having pulled it off a couple of times counts in my book. I dont think anyone has the beetle down yet but we are still discussing it cos its cool.
Also if you wanna come up to Bristol for a staff weekend you welcome any time, me and t&b live together, have a practice studio and there are other local staffers around. PM me if your up for it.
