Today I’m going to talk a little about dance skills. Good dance skills are beautiful, I could watch them all day. Bad dance skills….well, they make me cringe. Here are a couple videos of things that may your kids dance better.
This first video is actually a pretty neat drill for arm positions on split jumps. Personally I’d have the gymnast stand a little more in front of the mats, but that’s just because I like the arms slightly more behind in a split jumps. Not a lot, but a few inches.
This second video is another great video from British Gymnastics on creating beautiful illusion turns. Also, by the way, has anyone ever seen that many gymnasts in one gym doing illusions on beam? Pretty cool.
Not to worry!
