Originally posted by Sandi on tribe.net.Many of the traveling steps can be used to fade. At the intermediate/advanced level, some of the more complicated moves/sequences can be used to fade. Devyanis version looks slightly different than ours (or maybe they choreographed that?), but both have similar paths. We would start in a Turkish Shimmy do one round of TS 1/4 turns in place, then the second round has the option of fading. The leader stepping back on the start of the next round indicates the fade. Fading on the up arms, holding in place on the horizontal arms.
Originally posted by Sandi on tribe.net.Fading on the TSWAT doesnt work because the turns are on the first part of the movement. TSWAT, for now, is reserved for circling. If you wanted to do the TSWA (without the turns) in a fade, you could try it, but the timing on the arms would be tricky. Dont want to whack anyone! ;}
Originally posted by Madonna DrumDance on tribe.net.Sandi, do you mean by fade on up arms when facing left? then continue 1/4 turns ie turning to back on horizontal arms, fading back on up arms when facing right, and in place on horizontal arms facing front?
