Loved the class! Not what I imagined from the title but certainly worth doing. Makes lots of ideas spring into my head for the different bodies and age groups we have in class. I thought the participants were great sports and would sign them up myself for the Dance of the Little Swans. The bourrees at the end were priceless - what a great way to teach the step in a ballet class. Thank you
I enjoyed the new ideas for the ring. I suggest varying the grip and pressure on the ring during the different routines, pulling open engages different muscles (instead of only pressing inward the whole class long). I always love learning new cuing from excellent experienced instructors!
Thanks so much for your positive input. Interesting historical fact: Magic circles used to be MUCH HEAVIER, had heavy wooden handles, and 3-4 winds of metal strapping. No inside handles, so pushing out with legs was possible with extra padding placed inside circle, but was difficult with arms. The new lighter weight circles are versatile in many ways, & I love your idea to push out from inside!
