Posted:My first post as well. I've been spinning for about 3 months now and this is my first video. Since I don't have anyone to practice with (I've learned through this site, mainly.) I would really appreciate any tips or critiques. Thanks so much!

p.s. A bit about the vid. I didn't realize I was being filmed, so the beginning and end are missing. Additionally this was impromptu and I don't really have a routine yet!

Posted:Hi Tastie,

What you need is to clear your behind the back's,
try it wall plane to turn with them.

Your hands were so fixed!

Keep the move of both of your hands,
as smooth, as rhyme.

keep on spinning,

:R

Posted:Hey

Trust me, it's better when you don't "realise" you're being filmed wink And that's a great first video - I only got my fire down at 10 months, so well done smile

i agree with the stuff Richee said about your hands being fixed. Also - and I don't know if this is just because myspace makes the video a bit jerky - it looks like you don't complete a lot of your circles. As irritating as it is, you need to practise one hand at a time - starting with your "bad" hand until your moves are fluent and smooth. When you then poi with both hands, it will probably be easier to follow through from onen move to another.

I also learned on my own, and it's trial and error when there's no one there to show you exactly how it's done. But, at least you will develop your own unique style which isn't based on anyone's "brand" of spinning.

At 3 months you're doing great smile Keep it up !!

Posted:Thank you! The encouragement is just as helpful as the critiques! I'm still making equipment choices. Trying differend grips, weights, fuels etc. That's one area where having others around would definately help!
