    Originally posted by Valizan on tribe.net.Nope. It really depends on what you want to do next.br/br/If you Resham-ka forward and want to travel backwards, you can a travelling move to move backwards: Wet Dog, Arabic, Ghawazee if you are adventurous.br/br/If you Resham-ka forward because you want to feature something forward, you can: Shoulder Shimmy Combo (Sassy Sweet as I like to call it), Arm undulations (Maybe a level added for interest...), Flutters.br/br/Egyptian is convenient because your arms are there, but it is not what you HAVE to do. Be creative!

    Originally posted by Sandi on tribe.net.Hold on now. No, you dont have to do Egyptian after Resham-ka after moving forward, but you wouldnt use Arm Undulations or Flutters with it. Be careful of mixing slow moves with fast!br/br/One way you would need to use the Egyptian with the Resham-ka is if you are facing your partner in a duet and using the Resham-ka to pass w/8cts then Egyptian for 8cts, cueing for the 1/2 turn on the last 4cts. This allows you to face your partner again.

    Originally posted by Alicia on tribe.net.Sandi I am so pleased you said that! I had a horrible thought that at some stage I was going to be told I had to do flutters fast. I cant even do them to slow music! (yet).

    Originally posted by Mary on tribe.net.One of my favorite things to do is the Reshamka forward, back with Egyptian basic, Reshamka forward again, and then back with the Wet Dog. It makes me feel even sassier during the Wet Dog!br/br/The girls I dance with half expect this "combo" from me by now, but in the back of my mind I still think "Oooo, I did the Wet Dog instead of the Egyptian basic! I feel like such a rebel!!!! Ha HA!"br/br/Am I easily entertained? ....perhaps....

    Originally posted by Valizan on tribe.net.Thank you Jenn!br/br/Sorry, I wasnt suggesting mixing fast and slow, I was just offering options on what to do once you resham-ka forwards. br/br/Though, flutters by their very nature are fast so Im confused as to why you wouldnt use them to accent fast bits in fast music?

    Originally posted by Sandi on tribe.net.Ya, what she said.br/br/Tho, if youre doing a fast solo, by all means put the flutters wherever you want.br/br/Still, Arm Undulations dont go in the fast vocabulary. Just sayin.
