In light of some of the concerns that came up during practice, here are some clips I thought might help you in some of our tricks we do. Watch each section carefully to help you get your body and foot positions right on steps like the sausage roll, slash, and circle slide.
Here is the routine in the gym. Great job guys!
Sorry I only have HALF of this one! The camera died!
So Brent and I, being the geniuses we are, filmed this rumba today after class. But we set the camera on top of the speakers of the stereo. This caused it to bounce and vibrate EVER so slightly, but enough to make the video not so great. Still, it shows the routine for Rumba, and you'll note there are a few minor fixes that we battled out. There was also supposed to be a West Coast video but...McKenzie didn't actually press "record", or maybe she thought I had already pressed it. At any rate, there is no West Coast Video of just Brent and I. Sorry! We'll get one soon! And a Samba, too!
Here is our West-Coast after working it today. Looks a lot better!
Here is the change in the Samba voltas--looks awesome!
Swing, Rumba, and Samba. Umm...yeah. Still needs just a LITTLE work...but we rock!!
After class, Brent and I practiced the swing in the routine. Notice that we added TWO spins after the American spin--this makes the timing work out better.
Yay! We have finished choreographing the rumba and samba! All we have left is West Coast Swing, which we will do on Monday. After that we will focus on making the steps look AWESOME! So here is the video. Please just ignore the part where Christian drops Amanda...;)
Mrs. Rees is awesome.
