Originally posted by icy on tribe.net.Okay, I am going to try to keep this "question" simple. *note word try*br/br/There are duets, trios, quartets for the dancer "count" formations forward facing towards audience in dance angle. (Count referring to two, three, and four dancers)br/br/Formation changes within these can be as follows???? (Correct if wrong please)br/*Facing each other in duets and trios (third person in a trio faces audience forward - while the other two, like in a duet, directly face each other)br/*Circling - all formation sizes for changing leads if desiresbr/*Diagonals - trios, what about quartet...cant recall if can be done or just preference in trios for visibility purposesbr/*Fading - trios/quartets which puts leader in middle if trio and second position when quartet. Lead change or not.br/*Push Back - the whole dance group moves together backwards and returns to original position but no lead changebr/br/What about....br/Passing in trios...okay to do (those facing each other if agreed upon beforehand can do a pass, middle person stays in place)?br/Flame formation? trio, center person is brought forward via a fade or agreed ahead to move forward between facing duet that are "chorusing" the mini solo? or can turn into a regular fade at some point after tiny solo spot?br/br/I know there are a couple more I was trying to remember, but I wanted to check if these were correct and being used...thanks so much. 🙂
Originally posted by Carrie on tribe.net.Well, I dont use any of the fancy trio stuff that you mentioned outside of fading and diagonal. It all sounds like it would have to be choreographed. br/A trio has all the same rights as a quartet with the exception that they can be a diagonal.br/And a quartets exception is that it can be a dueling duet (agreed upon before hand, but not choreographed moves).br/br/Ive never been taught or done the passing in trio or flame formation that you mentioned.
Originally posted by Valizan on tribe.net.Ive been sitting here trying to go over in my head your collection of "what about" and I have no clue. br/br/Have you seen these somewhere? I dont remember seeing them as you are describing them.
Originally posted by icy on tribe.net.@Val - yes...former FCBD member here used to do these when she was in SF. So, I just was trying to figure out if some of this was still in usage or not.br/br/And Carrie, they dont have to be choreographed just the "agreed upon" thing beforehand it how I know it and it has been put into application when I was doing that more so.br/br/I will see if I can find an example of the "Flame" (or at least that is what it was called here)....it was done mostly with slow and floorwork.br/I seem to remember it in a very early on video...but dont hold me to that LOL...I will search it out.br/

Originally posted by Valizan on tribe.net.Hm. I HAVE seen that before, but Ive only ever seen it when Carolena was doing her usual solo, not anybody else. I didnt think it was so much a formation as framing for Carolena. br/br/Interesting.
