Posted:Seeing as there is a poi goals thread, thought there was a need to start a staff goals thread.

Posted:smile thank you beth

hummm, summer solid fishtail duality, bothways and spinning,
angel conctacty stuff
finding ways of getting what i have already kinda solid, to be more moving meditation, as at the moment it is too designatedly flowy, rather than being natrually so, so lose my self in sticks.

end of summer, start maybe learning 3 stick stuff, if i can manage it
(non slippy when wet silicone grip designs)

prance aroudn with fire palms, teach Ax to spin,
learn to juggle,

lots of goals, ummm other goals are:

learn matrix's (mathmatical type)
understand super symetery
learn complex number and relate to speed C
other stuff like such, oh and not develop a canaidian accent :P

Contact without dance is like sex without wiggling.
A) it does feel as good
B) it does not look as good on film

The staff goes from the right hand to the back of the neck, and then rolled up the right arm.... then a palm spin can be done smile

I have a large list of contact moves that I got from here that I will work through over the summer biggrin

Posted:Mmmmmmm sticks. I remember sticks. Maybe having some goals will get me to play with them again.
Kyle's Sticky Goals for 2005:
1) Start playing with sticks again (might have to hide my juggling gear)
2) Find a good stick partner (I remember finding one once, but she has an annoying habit of wandering the globe in a random fashion, and hence is always off being a gypsy) and delve into the universe of interactive possiblites. Combine more contact dance and acrobalance with staff imporv.
3) Get into playing with multi stix with screwed up balances

Good luck with all your dreams

I'm working on steves at the moment, though my face will soon end up a bloody pulp if I carry on the way I'm going with it, that I'd like to nail in the next few weeks biggrin
And I'd like to see someone do a matrix this summer smile

Posted:Get better at smooth pirouette's, nail the full matrix consistently, improve my continuous movement routines.

I also need to differentiate between the LNS (Left Nipple Spin) and the RNS (You figure it out biggrin). I do love chest spins, they rock so hard.

The prayer steve is one i've been thinking about learning, but always forget when i actually have my stick with me. Also I have an appointment with Miss Fluff to learn the cartwheel half steve at Fal4.

As for doubles...god yeah, i need to practise doubles more. smile

You every think about teaching as a career fluffy?

My goals this year would be to learn to spin like strugz, rob, mo-seph and fluffy. So thats the goal but lets be serious that wont happen this year so realistically I would be happy with flow.
