And the hand positions for the other not in "stop" signals? Please help, anything would be great! Thanks.

You can choose to a bodywave when you finish propeller, but its not a belly roll or flutter. Some folks go into bodywave directly after propeller or reverse turn because your arms are already there, so its quite convenient.

    Originally posted by Shay M on tribe.net.Quick thought: my understanding is that they never cross during the corkscrew turn, Carrie. Carolena described it as if there were a pole right in front of your body, and your palms are flat down, pushing as if they are sliding down the sides of the pole, so that we remember *not* to cross the hands. That was something that really stuck with me from the TT. Unless I am somehow mistaking it with something else, but I cant imagine what.

    Originally posted by Brandi Mc on tribe.net.Hmmm, when I do Corkscrew Turn, I cross my hands, and my hands are palms in and fingertips up, not flat or down.br/However, what you are describing sounds exactly like what I do when I transition into Arabic Step.

    Originally posted by Sandi on tribe.net.Ok, checked in with Carolena. The hands do cross in front, but it is okay if they dont cross. Just be sure youre not crossing your arms.br/br/Sharon, now I can see the visual you were talking about with the pole. That is the shape your hands are making, but they dont have to be holding onto the pole. I cross just the hands, but not as far as the wrists.

    Originally posted by Carrie on tribe.net.Shay, I thought the pole thing too for the longest time, until C & M were just up here in July, and they taught the crossed hands. But as mentioned, Im sure the universe will not implode if the hands dont cross. ;-)br/br/Beloved, can you please describe your question that Wendy asked for elaboration on??
