Cue to duett by Namid on 1/9/17

Dear Colette, how do you cue the change from trio to duett? It looks allways so plump as I begins with it. Im sure there's something I am missing to do, to show the third and the second dancer when we are getting in the change to duett. Thank you so much for all your help, I really love your videos, you are so clear!!! <3 Kind regards from Switzerland!

Colette Todorov:

Hello Namid, Thanks for the questions. Communication transitions and changes to formation can be tricky. If we wanted to start a song with a trio, then switch to a duet to finish the song, we would discuss this ahead of time. I'd say something like, Colette, Namid and Rachel start the song, then Rachel leaves and Colette and Namid finish the song. This way we all know that at some point Rachel will leave the trio and join the chorus. All the dancers would be prepared for the change and would circle mid-way through the song, all make eye-contact and Rachel would quickly leave. For this kind of transition, it is important for the person leaving, to make sure everyone knows they are leaving (don't just sneak away - make eye contact), and to leave quickly and gracefully. Have fun with your duets and trios! Colette

Fantastic by Cheryl on 1/27/13

I am so glad I tried this class! Ms. Todorov is a wonderful instructor, and she breaks down the movements in a very clear, concise manner. It is really wonderful to have these ATS classes available...a great alternative to spending $30 for an ATS DVD. Thanks daturaonline!
