comments, criticism welcome. Positive one liners, not so much.

Also I failed at encoding, forgot to set it to widescreen and that's what you get.

lovely spinning as usual - but I have a few crits:

the choice of song - yeah it's a great song and the only reason I bought an album by black, but I didn't really feel a connection between it and the performance - if someone's performing to a song about what a wonderful life it is I'd expect them to smile a bit more wink

you were really 'poised' for the first minute, after that not so much I thought - as in footwork seemed a little less clean and defined

I thought the rolling on the floor bit with the saxophone solo was going to start a whole groundwork sequence: IMHO it would have been nice to fit that in with the music

It might have been better to go for a simpler trick at the finish

mini me was a bit distracting to be honest

cartwheel trick=win

smile

also, when am I going to get you to come to Cambridge? wink

Because ActiveAngel sounds like a feminine deodorant

Like sex, I'm much more interesting in real life than online.

yea, nice tricks and all but i thought you were too straight for too much of the routine. Like the only movements your body made were those necessary for the moves, the movements were clean, just a bit too minimalistic for my tastes.

I'd have liked to see you dance around more, bend your body more and look more like you were really getting into the music rather than just performing tricks.
Also think about where you are looking at every point of the routine, you spent most of it looking at the staff or the ground, very little looking at the audience.

Like Guy said, cartwheel move was nice, i may steal that.

footwork had lots of little half-steps and adjustments which gives a slightly unsure feel to it.

if your going for the really minimal and precise routine then i think every movement that does happen needs to be more solid to the point of feeling mechanised.

Loved the song choice, thought you matched it's ennui perfectly, don't change a thing with that, especially the look to audience. There's not enough slow staffing to slow tunes about.
Didn't think the luceros needed the arms, perhaps if they were a little more "swimmy" and less "guiding". How about only shoulders with hands in pockets? In fact, yeah, more stuff with hands in pockets would have suited the tune.
Thought your footwork was pretty good meself.
