Year: 
2015

In this class we will be going over how to perform flowers in anti/spin and in/spin in both wall plane and wheel plane. We will also be covering the different transitions that you can perform these flowers in that include: together same, together opposite, split same, split opposite. 

Objectives of the class:

1. Learn how to perform a anti spin flower in both wheel/wall plane, in both directions and both hands.
2. Learn how to perform a 4 pedal in spin flower in both wheel/wall plane, in both directions and both hands.
3.

A really reely way to learn body tracing with doubles!

We will be exploring reels on and around your body and fun ways to combine them to create sleek body tracing on top of patterns.

Why reels?
Where are the reels?
How to body trace with them
Patterns you already do you can now trace

Tricks from traps - SoSC (Staff on Staff Contact for Double Staffs)

10
Year: 
2015

Come learn how to spin two contact staffs around your body at the same time by utilizing "traps" or stopping points where you can reset your grip and energy with style. We will start off with a basic description and demonstration of SoSC Traps then progress onto several tricks you can do out of them and end with some show stopping moves and a skill share!

Double Staff Crossers In Depth

10
Year: 
2015

Welcome to the world of the double staff crosser! Also known as "huggies", this is a family of moves that involves crossing your arms or hugging yourself. Learn how to flow into crossers, what to do once you get there, and how to flow out. Covers same direction, opposite direction, 1-beat, 2-beat, flower, CAP, movement, body tracer and contact integration.

Double Staff Reels, Weaves and Tracers

21
Year: 
2015

In this workshop we will cover a lot of ground is in a short amount of time, we will discuss different reel combinations, including waist wraps, crossers, a few body tracers and basic reel transition theory. We will also work on several different types of 2 and 3 beat weaves, tracing through more advanced pattern type movements, and expanding in and out of all of these movements to start incorporating them and using them to break up your slow pattern based flow.

Instructor: 

Double Staff Basic Building Blocks

11
Year: 
2015

We will be covering the basics of double staff theory with an emphasis on finding your own creative flow right from the start. We will start with one and two beat reels and stalls in all possible timing and direction combinations. For each trick, we will explore all the different parts of the body we can use to effect that move and how to allow the staves maximum freedom, momentum and flow. We will play with the distinction between "staff-centric" movement and "body-centric" movement. If there is time, we will begin applying the same principles to antispin/isolation combos.

Long Sequence Double Staff Patterns

23
Year: 
2015

Trying to wrap your brain around advanced pattern algorithms can be extremely overwhelming at first, in this workshop we will discuss all different types of long sequence patterns, like 8 steps, zans diamonds, s-caps, etc, and how to break them down into smaller easy to understand bits and pieces. After exploring existing pattern sequences, we will discuss combining, alternating, rotating and repeating different concepts to come up with your own long sequence patterns.

Advanced Double Staff Flowers

27
Year: 
2015

In this workshop we will explore all the basic 2 and 3 beat double staff shapes, and how to do them utilizing a reel based technique rather than finger spinning. We will first go over 6 & 8 petal anti spin flowers and 2 & 4 petal in-spin flowers in all timing and direction combos. After familiarizing ourselves with those movements, we will play with combing them into different hybrid shapes, and using them in some more advanced hybrid sequences.

Reels & Wheels

33
Year: 
2015

This is an intro course to double staffs. We'll be learning the power of our inner locomotive by exploring our body with different kinds of Reels. Then using choo choos to turn reels into wheels to explore the world of double staff! outline: I will start with hip reels and and how to stall/reverse them. We will move on to shoulder reels and the stalls/reverses with them as well. To continue, transferring between hips and shoulders, as well as how to go from split time to same time, as well as same/spit direction.
