This week's Friday Flourish is mined from the same LEAF 2009 video we found our last one in. This week we look at a twisty swing. The lead for this is a little tricky, but once you get in the proper position the follow-through is not that difficult. Only particular caveats are that this would be better with a regular partner than a brand new one, and be careful of anyone's shoulder issues.
You, too could have your flourishes featured on this blog! Send them to me and they might be featured!
This project has concluded as of mid-2013 (with an epilogue posted mid-2016) but we hope to see you soon on a contra dance floor! Meanwhile, head over to our Facebook page for upcoming techno contra events and other items of interest.
The 100+ Friday Flourish videos can still be found on YouTube.
I dance with abandon. I play with glowsticks. I look for music that is conducive to one or both. I play behind cameras. I write about all of the above. I'm based in Glen Echo's contra dance community outside of Washington, D.C., but I'm happy to go dance afield when I can. Lather, rinse, repeat. Always repeat.
