You'll find more posts to more links to video clips in every post I make in this thread - Look out for 3 angels angel angel angel

smile



Todays video for your pleasure:

Baton twirling - Sheryl Welykholowa, Jill Ford, Stacy Singer - Triple Threat

Linky linky



Details: On stage probably 2002 . A super tight performances from world champion standard baton twirlers.

Amazingly talented trio including Stacy Singer doing monster rolls - a move apparently invented for her and remamed matrix by the edinburgh staff twirlers.

See Glitzy stuff, 3 baton juggling, contact sequence and some qualilty strutting about.



If you like this, make a post below. If you have any requests, I can post them too. biggrin

The jedi juggling is very silly Mr Coleman, and you're a very silly boy.

On to more serious matters. This is quite lengthy, but worth a watch. I am torn between extreme anticipation for, and dread that my life will be consumed by...

the best video game ever?

Not manipulation, but good for a smile.
And how did we ever live withour compilations of pets doing silly things, in this case - dogs

Weird, (or stupid) I'm currently running 2 blogs on the same subject:
www.ministryofmanipulation.com/blog
I really need to sort this out, but in the meantime I guess I'll just have to post different things on each of them.

I'm not sure how to link this in, other than it involves a wheel and is very balletic (I think that's the word).

Anyway, watch this for some lovely, lovely unicyling by Kaori Matsuzawa

OH, my good, LazyAngel I love it.

Thanks biggrin



There are 3 exciting manipulation videos that I've been promised will be published next week, if even one of them comes through, then it gonna be a good un.

______________________________________________________________

Girl manipulation, well alright, really its the smoothest lindy hop ever - partner dancing.

Andrew Sutton (This guy mops my floor.*) and a variety of friends dancing sensibly and dancing stoopidly



There are 3 clips to watch "andrew and ria" in the middle, is a demonstration dance, my bet is that its not a routine, I.E. thats a lead/follow and mostly improvised demonstration, his site is called SMOOTH savoy, with good reason.

https://www.smoothsavoy.com/videos.htm



The other 2 clips on the top row are very silly routines, a lot of fun stupid dance/clowning routines. You wouldn't believe its the same guy.



Enjoy

Drew



* not a joke, he was round at my warehouse in march, and in the morning was mopping the floor - while hanging from a rope. I get all the best domestic cleaners. Such a dude, we nearly got chucked out of the london underground system for being naughty. Apparently dancing is not permitted on london underground property. biggrin

Amazingly, the first of the video's I was promised acually came through

So here is a good one from MoM.

Ryan - Modern/London:
https://ministryofmanipulation.com/blog/?p=31

Minimalist contact manipulation - isolations and bodypopping with balls and clubs from Ryan. This has been sneaked out in some places, so some of you may have seen this before, but today marks our official release.

That guy was gorgeous to watch.
My only criticism was that i really really wanted a few closer shots.
Although i loved the way it was shot and the locations it was filmed in, there were a few moments where in order to give it a bit more perspective it would have been nice to have more camera angles.

Still loved it though! ubblove

Jugglers should try to work in some synchronized step team moves. That would be hot.



If I had university to do all over again, I would totally join this sorority.



Oh and...



Yo, let's all dress up like Lil' John and do a crazy 8 minute step routine.



C'mon Cole, get on that...



5(with stomp) 5(with stomp) 5(with stomp) (*clap) (*clap)

3(with stomp) 3(with stomp) 3(with stomp) 5(shuffle stomp) 5(shuffle stomp) 5(shuffle stomp) (*clap) (*clap) [catch] [catch] [catch] (pelvic thrust) (stomp) (stomp)



OK, my sideswap needs work. wink



And if you're still craving step routines, Jersey Girls are in the house.



And you can complete the series with Albany.

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

jay gillgan to the rescue smile



all below material pilfered from jay gilligan's blog - check it out at www.buildingweight.com



 Written by: jay gilligan



The Flying Wallendas Family IJA 2005 Script



Each beat of the music is written out below. Following each beat of music is a symbol-

# means throw on that beat,

* means walk on that beat,

@ means catch all props and stop juggling on that beat.





All patterns are in cascade unless otherwise noted. When there are two beats in a row with the # throw symbol, you will catch the first throw at the same time you throw the second throw. This just means you are juggling on beat and the beat is in your hand, not in the peak of the ball. So when you have not been juggling and you throw on beat 1 of a phrase, you are obviously not marking the beat in your hand as there is only a ball leaving your hand and not one coming down since it is the first ball to start the pattern.





Then, just to make things more fun, the * symbol for the step means the foot lands on that beat. It does not move on that beat but instead hits the floor on that beat. So for example if after the first 1 in a phrase of 8 counts, I have to step on count 1 and I have not been stepping before that, I have to move my foot on the music count and, which is a half beat before count 1, so that my foot can hit the floor on the actual count 1. this means that if you move your foot on count one, it will be late when it comes down.





I have made this difference between feet and hands because it was the most natural way to move with the music. Dont stress out about it and do your best and breathe and have fun!





The @ symbol means that you do not throw on that beat, only catch on that beat. This means that if I want to juggle inside of 8 counts of music, I only do 7 throws so that the last catch is the last beat. Obviously if I would do 8 throws then I would catch the last ball on the 1 of the next phrase of 8.





Nothing after a number in the beats below means that you do nothing.





The starting formation on the stage for the piece shall be a straight line with the performers facing the audience and running stage right and left. We will be lined up in order of height and not in order according to our part in the script. This means people who have the same part in the script will be spread out around the stage so you cant rely on your friend to tell you what comes next! At the start of the piece we all take steps to get into the line. This is simply accomplished in rehearsals by first forming the line, then looking at your part of the script to see how many steps you have to take at the start. Then you take that many number of steps out of line in a random direction. In this way we can all be randomly placed on stage and over the course of the first 8 counts of 8 we can come into an orderly line ON BEAT.





Time has been built into the script for you to change props when needed.





jay then goes on to list the full script for his part of the routine



you can find it on his blog if you really want to see it smile
