    What TangoKinesis students are saying:

    ‎Lee Hilson‎ to Percell St Thomass
    Yesterday at 4:01pm · Pocahontas, MS ·
    I just had a Percell moment, as I was walking to my room with a wide and straight carpet flooring, I fell into the 8 count basic. It is the first step that caught my attention. Lately, I had slipped into the sloppy execution of my 1st step by failing to slightly rotate (or screw as was once suggested) my upper body to my right. I had not fully appreciated the screw action. Incorrectly, I would sway the lady to get her weight on her right while stepping straight back, thinking that I had her weight where it needed to be. That is when I had a Percell moment, realizing that as I step back making a small contra rotation, this induces a natural bio-mechanical forward step with her left leg as my contra rotation elicits her left hip forward and the leg is going to follow the hip’s lead to maintain balance.
    I heard your voice in my head speaking of how the leg always moves forward and hips are responsible for rotation (turning), this is not a quote just how I filtered it in my thoughts. So now it is with greater clarity that I see that body rotation, normal or contra must be in agreement with weighted foot of the follower.
    Can you tell that I feel imprisoned in my house by the Summer heat and humidity?

    Becke Collins I wish there was a share with this. Not all leaders have this, and it is good for beginners to hear again as well.

    Percell St Thomass I wish there were a share with it also. There are leads, follows, beginners, inters, advancers, and even some teachers who need to hear and understand these things. I was fortunate enough to make the practica last saturday, and was told repeatedly how the little movement/lead/follow tips that I was able to offer helped greatly with the movements that were being danced. This is not a pat on my back; it is a testament to how important these things are; how illusive they can be (even to pros); and, what a joy it is when the dancer feels that 'DK" moment. (LOL...thanks for calling it a Percell moment, Lee. I liked that) :D :D

    Becke Collins If we think we have arrived and will not received instruction, we are the worse for it. It is a never ending process.

    Percell St Thomass Hey Lee! That's great! Those moments will begin to come more and more frequently as you continue to study and progress. Thanks for sticking it out with me, and more so with yourself. I promised that I could get you there, and you're doing it! Thanks for the post.
