I try to use my tribe.net search, and it always signs me out!br/br/Any way, when doing spins, how does one know how to hold the arms - either in "second position" or right arm raised ? I watch the videos, and I cant seem to get the cue! The spins I see come out of egyptians, egyptian half - turns, turning reshamka, and hip bump when facing your partner. br/br/Thank you all for your help and inspiration!

I dont know if it is a hard and fast rule, but it works and makes sense to me. 🙂
Originally posted by Sandi on tribe.net.The rule of any follower is to follow the leader.br/br/Once we see the cue for spins, we immediately assess the space were dancing in and possibly anticipate the arm position, but that isnt going to always be what happens. As we turn we can see for a split second what the leader is doing and we adjust.
Originally posted by Wendy on tribe.net.tight space = right arm up. br/no cue, you get to the point where you can catch it as you start your first spin, if not, it doesnt matter, catch it as soon as you see it. The only time I always use right arm up is during the Reshamka into calibrated spins, because it just makes sense and compliments the shape of the whole combo.
