Posted:Meg's Academy of How to Move Good and Do Other Things Good Too.

So back in the day I asked Drew what 'style' was. In our conversation, it came to be negatively defined. It wasn't a list of tricks that you did that others didn't do. That wasn't style. It wasn't the sequencing of the tricks or the transitions, it wasn't what movement you did 'underneath' the spinning. Well that doesn't leave much I thought. I couldn't figure out what was left remaining to 'be' style. If two people were doing the exact same thing, spinning and movement wise, surely they would have the same 'style'? Well nope.

Style isn't what your doing, it's how your doing it. Even deeper than that, it's who you are. You can't get away from it, unless of course, you study dance for ten years.

What is style then? For me at least, it's like that old jazz anecdote... how can a jazz player sound constantly lazy but never get out of time with the song? Well they consistently play a fraction after when they are supposed to, but always the same fraction of time, still keeping pace with the song.

How does this apply to spinning? Well in my view, part of the beauty of spinning, and part of some spinners good style is to be equally 'slow/lazy' so they consistently move just a fraction slower than they should.

Yes they're always in control, with good footwork and extremely smooth spinning. But there's something else in their movement that makes it their own. Some of this is a definition of grace, some of it is going towards style I guess... It's tough to delineate the two for me. I find it's only the graceful spinners that I want to watch...

Oh tangent time...


Yeah is these videos it's hard to distinguish the beauty in the movement alone, cos it's video and not real life... Some of them I think have better movement than others... but it's very hard to tell on video.


Thomas: Cares a lot about poi and has very clean considered body movement. Especially in the Levistick video, cos they do nice editing.
http://www.eldsjal.org/movies/salza/levistick.mov
br>


Shion: Shion has an amazingly deep squat that he is constantly using. He also controls his upper body a lot leading to his distinctive style of contact staff. More apparent in the second video. But the first shows his passion for staff.





Alex: A background in all martial arts and theatre has left this guy with awesome movement.



Malaman: Smooth, great footwork, great control, very french.



Banyan: Banyan's style is heavily influenced by his props and how he holds them. I think he keeps a tight grip on his props and this forces him to use his body more in his movements, rather than just his arms and wrists.



Club guy: Club guy here is awesome. His movement isn't so readily apparent as good, but the way he makes his clubs move is absolutely beautiful. He also has some really well thought out transitions and tricks in this video.



Nimi: Nimi, Nimi, Nimi. I love watching Nimi, It's hard to analyse because I'm constantly being distracted by the beauty of the movements he's doing and the difficulty of the tricks he does. He really uses his other arm to frame the ball and it's really magical... I love it. He seems to have more grace in any one joint than I have in my entire body.



Adrian Mondot: The possible king of the beautiful movement jugglers. He's controlled, graceful, he moves around and does tricks which compliment his movement.



c2laballe: This guy has good movement too. It's hard to tell in these videos of juggling, but if you saw him in real life you'd know. He's really passionate about adding movement to his juggling.



Emiliano Another dancer / juggler. He does some amazing ground work in this video and other beautiful shenanigans. Much better in person also.



Linda: Dance + Contact Staff, some beautiful stuff, shame about the skirt, can't see the footwork.





Yeah I can't get over this guy... This guy makes me crazy:



windstyle:



Bishop is the MAN!



This guy just has really really good movement.




Some really nice movement in this too, occasionally.

It's funny that now since David Elswhere getting kind of big and putting more focus on liquid and such, he's not as impressive. Now that people like Bishop here are doin this, they're polishing the style that he seemed to have a massive influence on.

I like seeing stylish ropedart, I want more people to use it as more than a fire martial arts exercise

Posted:Oooh, be careful on the whole Bishop/Elsewhere likenings... wink Obsessive Popper here, and I might just get pedantic on yo' ass! wink

Elsewhere and Bishop have completely different styles. Bishop is Windstyle. A style of waving that gives your body an effect similar to a flag blowing in the breeze. Elsewhere's style is very much animation and contours. Animation = Making yourself look like a cartoon. like you're not real. Contours = liquid paths that trace the body, and often effect the way in which it moves. But yeah, that's just highlighting what Meg says about different styles. same principles in both, but they look different. you even noticed a difference when you were able to form an opinion of which looks best to you. smile To the trained eye, they're completely different. to the untrained eye, one just looks better than the other./ramble

Elsewhere is a genius. you just haven't seen any videos of what he's doing recently. Also his performances are very... typical of a performer: find a routine that works, and milk it. Fair play. it's made him a lot of money, and he's got some super hard stuff down to an effortless level.

You have a very good selection of movement inspirational videos there, meg. I approve. Mind if I add some more as and when I come across them? smile

Posted:It's coo' cook. I'm familiar with the differences. I suppose my point was that when more abstract dancing got popular (through the likes of elsewhere) it opened up the doors for other abstract styles to get some nice squishy attention.

When I was doing more liquiding and raving Elsewhere was my biggest influence. Now I don't focus on that stuff so much anymore. I'm working towards more calm dancing like belly dancing. And I dunno, after seeing a lot of these videos it stops being something that impresses me as much.

But anyway

Meg here always makes me wanna pick up contact staff, I guess I just need to decide I Wanna buy a staff. Although I'd have little room to practice and it's winter so outdoor stuff blows...probably another reason to get that ymca membership...
I like any prop that makes me want to move differently when I use it.

Posted:Ed: Yeah, course you can. I tried to get like the ones who are most clear and obvious that they have good movement. Not just like dance or skillz, but trying to get the people that you'd notice walking on the other side of the street because they just plainly move well. The kind of person that makes you watch even if they're just spreading butter on toast. But it's very hard to discern that kind of quality from a video.

Clure: Yeah most girls don't have to overcome so much to move well. No stigma to them dancing. usually too they don't have to try so hard to get people to watch them. As durbs will no doubt testify, there are other good reasons to watch them. That might be why it's so hard to tell if they move well...

Also they are much less likely to have solo videos... i would love to see a new solo video from Maelle, Mariki, Camille, Jeanine, FluffyNapalmRos, Pistache... (Actually, I could probably include her)

Yeah, would have adored the clon convention, no doubt. but quite happily, I am in australia. AUSTRALIA!

MRC: Nah, liquid never ceases to amaze me. the time they put in to get it to that level... it's impressive. I just wanna move well, I don't think I'm going to put in the tim for a really clean illusional dance style...

I'd like to look casual. I think that's my primary goal is to just look like what I'm doing is a walk in the park. I want complex looking stuff lookin' like cake.

All smooth and delicious, fully and moist.

And I agree on the lady-dancers. I think the focus with female dancing has been sex. Also part of it seems to be that boys are discouraged from doing ballet or classical dance while girls are more encouraged towards it. Boys pick up on street styles, and I guess a decent separation begins there.

I was having a think about this during the commute to work this morning; particularly on the sub-topic of comparisons with music(ians).

a large part of what distinguishes one musician from another is less to do with the notes they select (there really are only a finite number of combinations, albeit a rather large number), and more to do with:


rhythm - this is a very large part of a musician's "style"; it also helps record stores "categorise" them tongue2timing - as meg has already alluded to; slightly behind the beat; slightly ahead of the beat; lazy triplets; poly-rhythms etcspace - this is the one I was really leading up to; a truly gifted musician knows when to play and when to shut the hell up. create space; play with how and when to pause; you don't have to spin at a million miles per hour the whole time; you don't have to spin slowly the whole time; it's all about ebb and flow, creating a wave for the audience to ride upon.

Yeah, I would catagorise* those as mostly to do with good 'flow' or good spinning, but not with good movement... You could apply some of them to movement as well I guess. Rhythm in movement and stillness as well...

TESTIFY!! grin

But on a more serious note, there are several female spinners, some even incredibly hot ones, who don't move well - and their hotness and lady-bumps don't make up for this.
The whole issue of men vs. women when it comes to dance is perhaps best left to a seperate thread, but I definitely agree that it's rarer for a guy to dance or even experiment with movement. Probably a throw-back to the school discos with the girls dancing and the guys standing around tapping their feet occasionally. Heck I'm still very guilty of this, as the several comments about my COL entry will prove ("You never spin like that") - I do, just not in public.

Originally Posted By: mcpi would love to see a new solo video from Maelle, Mariki, Camille, Jeanine, FluffyNapalmRos, Pistache
So would I (and Def, PooKa, Laura etc.). Is it interesting to note that apart from Ros and maybe Mariki (don't know her) - they're all French (French-ish in Jea9's case)?
Camille is awesome and is perhaps the most character-full when performing, certainly bringing a bigger aspect of acting/facial expressions to her performances. She is also less dancey, and more posture/pose based perhaps in her movements - and oozes style like it's a nasty weeping disease. But in a good way.

"Style" is a tricky one - many of the most stylish spinners also tend to have a certain style with other things they do, like how some people just walk/stand well, whilst others can make you nervous watching them and prepare to catch them if they fall over their feet. Whether this is nature/nurture isn't really an issue, but it'd be interesting to tally-up the naturally stylish and see what else they do.
Does Elsewhere stagger around like a drunk when he's not dancing? Did he play a lot of sport when he was young?
Is it purely a physical thing - as in good muscle structure and tone, or is there a mental aspect of knowing, whether concisous or sub-conciously, what looks good?

Ok, a movement video. Popping routine by U-Min.




Now, I'm not just highlighting the awesome popping and locking skillz in this video, because there are lots. I want you to look for things such as misdirection... ie, your attention is drawn to a certain place whilst something preparatory happens somewhere else, so you get all the magic, and none of the build up.

A lot of things happen that aren't expected, but they fit perfectly into the routine. a lot of hard work went into this one.

Also one of the few popping routines I have seen that builds a really solid scenario, one that is more than just a guy doing the robot.

This video = the best popping routine I ever did see.

I will try to find some routines/videos that aren't popping, I promise.

Massive, massive mental elemant. I'd say for most people it's the largest part. Sure if you're a highly trained ballet dancer that's more of a physical awareness, but there's still a mental element. Have been reading a book on imagary for dance which talks a lot about how your mental state affects how you move. And how using imagary can change this.

Look at the way a wannabe gangsta walks. That might be more a consious decision, but also look at the way someone really arrogant walks, possibly not even realising it. Compare this to someone with really low self confidence. They don't get up in the morning and think, 'Today I'm gonna slouch lots and look at me feet so no one looks at me.'

I think it's partly to do with what you think looks good, and also whether you have the body control to make that happen. But it's a lot more about how you feel - if you're nervous and don't think you look good, then you probaby won't. Having said that, any physical training has a big impact too; people have often describe my movement as 'elegant' - that's certainly not something I personally feel, or even want, or is part of my personality but I'd assume it comes from gymnastics training.

People are naturally attracted to confident people (in a lot of cases anyway) so it makes sense that sometimes you might find someone really attractive until you see certain insecurities that come out with their movements - I know I have. Or how some musicians or performers get on stage and are suddenly the most attractive thing that ever existed...

I think style for the most part comes from what you think of yourself. Who you think you are.

For some people, if you have a history of movement arts, weather it's dance, martial arts, gymnastics, or high level sports, I think it shows in your movement. I don't know if it really can't. If you've done like ten years of making your body work in a certain way, then you have more physical awareness and control.

Confidence yes, plays a large role. And there's lots of interesting things about certain types of actor / butoh / suzuki training that can bring out different aspects of your body.

Posted:^^^ I think thats an interesting point. Ever since I've been aware of the evolution of twirling, and especially the different 'movements' or schools of thought, I've tried to work out exactly what has been the main thing that I think characterises that school. Anyone who can remember the 'what is technical poi' threads know what I mean. For a while now, I've been characterising a lot of what has been going on as 'mirror movement' - ie moves/movement that you need to practise in a mirror to perfect - which leads to this highly geometric flat style of poi / staff / clubs.

I can understand the pursuit of this kind of movement, even if I personally feel a bit uncomfortable with the idea of staring at myself in the mirror for hours...

I guess there is an equity issue there tho, ie its extremely difficult to get good at mirror poi without having a large set of mirrors...yet another barrier that newbies need to get past before they can start feeling good about their poi...

true!

I have had access to large studio mirrors and have been practicing heaps in front of them. So much so that i have become very comfortable improvising and using the image I see in the mirror.
The problem with this for me has been that I get lost when performing without them because I don't have the visual reference I am used to.

I am now in the process of retraining myself to get my awareness back into my body.

I think that vidoes are a much better way to watch yourself. It's somewhat more objective and you can watch AFTER you are done

Mirrors are instant, you see what's happening, and we're all used to them, but then yes you only see from one angle and your head will always be pointing towards which ruins part of the routine I'm sure. Video can get any angle, but it isn't immediate feedback. I think BOTH are probably helpful.

As for a room full of mirrors, I'm gonna join my Local YMCA. I'd imagine similar institutions exist internationally though I'm not familiar. But THE Y will give me access to a good gym and a dance studio to practice in. Also, a gymnastics gym, I can practice flips and such. So perhaps consider joining gyms. Possibly a good resource.

Posted:I'd agree both are helpful, but IMO a poor substitute for real life feedback from someone who knows what they're talking about.

Mirrors are OK if you're just standing there trying to work out symmetry or timing, but I find the instant I try to move around, trying to keep my eyes on the mirror changes what I'm trying to do. There's something Quantum in there...wooooooo.

Video would probably be better. I've never tried it because I only just replaced my crappy old camera that would only take 30 second clips.

I think I've found this guy in Vancouver though...He teaches dance, he teaches poi, he owns a dance studio...So I'll make contact in the new year and see if he's up for a little critique work.

For some reason style seems to be an extremely difficult subject to broach IRL. Everybody tells me I'm "smooth" but if I ask where they think I could improve, I tend to get blank looks. I've put this down to people thinking more about these arts in terms of moves, rather than dance.

Foe some reason, i need an audience to really embrace that rock star show pony style that's necessary to be an entertainer. When spinning "privately" ( alone on in public ) I tend to feel rather stupid using that style.

Lots of people ask me how to do things or weather something can be done. But usually if they'd even attempted it ten times, they would have discovered the answers they seek for themselves.

With repetition comes the ability to concentrate on other than doing the move, but how it feels and looks.

Repetition, repetition, repetition.
