This is so beautiful, I have problems with speed and tempo and to be force to slow down the movement is a really challenge to me! I love it!!!!! Totally awesome class
Tried this tonight as an "out of my style and comfort zone" thing, just to get moving and drill, thought it would be easy :D
Quite a challenge for the brains, really loved it, got me thinking about things I had never looked at in quite this way before. Great lesson.
Also, LOVE the warmup.
Thanks a LOT....it`s so clear!!! That Elbow rotation explanation change my world!! :)
This video was amazing and created a huge CLICK in my brain when she explained the different things throughout. If you ever have the chance to take a workshop with Amy and Unmata..do it. It inspired me to continue dancing. :)
That's what I need. Counts, degrees, everything is so clear and logical. Thank you so much, Amy!
Loved the arm explanations! Thank you for allowing me to dance with you guys too!
I agree that was a great explanation of the elbow rotation required for that look of "boneless arm movement." It helped me understand what I have been seeing but have not been able to duplicate exactly. Thanks so much for another great lesson and thanks to Amy Sigil for being part of this site!
the Elbow rotation......I never had that explained before.... incredible

I have watched the first lesson a few times now. Thank you so much for counting it out. It really helped. I am going to get some velcro and stick my heels to the floor. Wonderful lessons!
