With that out of the way, Steven Roth and I are back to demonstrate another contra flourish! This one is a variant on a balance and swing that Steve saw on a YouTube video from Whipperstompers dance weekend (see 6:55 mark) a couple of years back that he's been incorporating into his dancing since then. For those of you who missed the announcement last week, there is also a ContraSyncretist YouTube channel where I am going to house this series and hopefully make a library of moves and how to do them.
Please share your flourishes (and how to do them)! Upload them to YouTube and then send me the link in the Contact Me form and they might get featured on this blog. As I said last week, I'm more than happy to feature other people (and actually would prefer to do so)!
Meanwhile, I'm off to the Dandelion Romp in Oberlin, Ohio this weekend! I hope to be able to report back with some new flourishes and perhaps something from a band that rocks, particularly as among others Giant Robot Dance will be playing, combining traditional tunes and modern compositions with an edge. It should be a blast -- hope to see some of you there!
Update: I just noticed that 100 people have "liked" my home page on Facebook! Thanks, everybody! Please keep spreading the word!
