  • Pretzel
  • Travelling Return
  • Swan Dip Crunch
Brent and Corina Beginners Modern Jive lesson 7The Pretzel is a crowd pleaser. It weaves in and through the couple's arms in a very unique way. An excellent move for your repertoir. The travelling return is ofetn utilised to set up for a move with your face to the audience. It has linear flow and velocity which creates nice tension for launching into whatever comes next. the Swan Dip Crunch isn't a dip. It is a crunch and there is very little or no weight on the leader here. It is snappy and rhythmic.

ADVANCED LEVEL MODERN JIVE: This dance lesson includes (one quite difficult balance move requiring medium strength and flexibility- tumble turn):
  • Springer Accordion
  • Latin Bow Tie
  • Salsa Dip
  • Man Guitar into
  • Tumble Turn

Only the fit and nimble should attempt these moves. The springer accordion is a nice flowing setup for the Latin Bow Tie. By a change of hands the lady is able to turn two full turns while holding both hands, the spins then flow nicely out into the Salsa Dip. A very smooth sequence and a crowd pleaser. The second half is another neat sequence. once getting into the ma guitar position the couple rotates together until the guy leads the lady in front and turns her under in an arch position, supporting her with one hand on the neck. A quick an agile move that requires great balance, timing and teamwork.

ADVANCED LEVEL MODERN JIVE: This dance lesson includes complex moves and one semi lift:
  • Pretzel Wrap Sequence
  • Hal Tea Pot Exit
  • Man Half Nelson
  • Lady Half Nelson
  • Palm Check Spins
  • Latin Leap

The Pretzel Wrap sequence come from a beginners pretzel setup and flows out into a double handed double spinning Tea Pot exit. Making it smooth and on beat is the challenge. The Half Nelsons are a different move requiring each partner to tuck their arm behind them, turn inward as if to wrap themselves up in their partners arm and duck under it while spinning. THis is hard to keep you balance and quite hard to get done in two beats neat. After the lady's turn she leads the man for a bowl over turn - which is also a nice difference (will help you understand your partner and what your own lead/follow feels like to them. The Palm checks require double free spins on the spot (hopefully) and the Latin Leap is really quite easy - a light but spectacular move with some close proximity. You advanced dancers will love this one.

There's over 7 mins of instruction here for such a small cost. Don't miss out.

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL This lesson includes:
  • First Move Head Chopper
  • False Lady Spin Rhondes
  • Latin Walks
  • Conan Trap 'n Wrap
  • Turtle Turn Drop with Lady Arch

The First Move Head Chopper is a great little mod to the first move. The man changes the lady's right hand into his right behind her back, quickly as she steps back beside him and then unwinds her, ducking to save his head from her flying arm. The False Lady Spin is the same as a Beginner lady spin except that the hands don't release and the lady doesn't spin. Instead both partners sweep their right leg out behind them in an arch. There's a change of pace as the sweep takes 2 beats. The Latin Walks are a playful floorcraft move. The lady is led forward, she turns and walks away from the man flicking around suddenly after 3 steps with a cheeky look in her eye and setting up for the Conan. The Trap'n Wrap flows straight out of the Conan and requires some swift hand changes from the man as he wraps the lady into his left side and offers his right hand in front as the couple begin to rotate clockwise. Once some momentum is gained the lady is returned and unwrapped out into a straight line. The Turtle Turn Drop begins with a rolling where the lady bends her head under the man's arm and drops into a straight lean position. Her feet come together and she exits out and up with a body roll assisted by the man's left arm only. Looks great.

Club Jive 32 Dips DVD
Price: 27.00 AUD
Type: DVD

32 different dips

The most notable thing about this DVD is the sheer amount of content.
There are 32 different dips taught here categorized as follows:
  • Dips from a Left to Right handhold
  • Dips from a Right to Right handhold
  • Dips from a double handhold
  • Dips from a Wurlitzer
  • John and Carolyn's favourites.

This is a workshop disk not a production disk. The sequence is not rehearsed and polished as you might expect from a production disk. After teaching an excellent workshop on these dips, they set up the camera and taught the workshop in summary form for the video. John and Carolyn and marvelous dancers and coreographers with many titles under their belt and they have a very clear and thorough manner of teaching. AUDIO: John is wearing a mic but the audio is captured through the camera's room mic and is therefore a little echoy.

VIDEO: The camera is slightly tilted throughout and the instruction is single angle only - no close-ups. The video quality is adequate, the background is simple and the lighting is good.

NAVIGATION: The navigation is nothing flashy but easy to get around the disk and find what you're after. Each category listed above has a sub-menu and each dip has a thumbnail picture in the submenu.

INSTRUCTION: The instruction is fast. Most of the dips are done aT two paces: talk-through and rhythmic. The talk-though is still pretty fast and the instruction is concise. You need to pay careful attention to what you're seeing to ensure that you comprehend the move and achieve it correctly. Rewind the move and study the location of each hand and foot, each transition. That being said, John spends more time on the earlier dips and many of the finer points of balance, timing and posture are transferable to the remainder of the moves. Still there are 32 dips taught in 23 minutes. All the instruction is done by John.
Each dip varies significantly from the others and you're sure to find something new with 32 different dips taught.

SUMMARY:

If you're a stickler for quality, there are some technical issues that may annoy you but they really don't hinder the usability of this disk. The audio, while a little echoy is still easily understandable. The video quality is adequate. Please watch the preview.

The content is very comprehensive and this is where this disk is very strong. There is so much material here that it will keep you going for years. The speed of that instruction may be too fast for some, but with a little experience, patience and a good use of the rewind button, you should be able to get good use out of this whole disk. Lots of good content for the price.

The format is DVD PAL widescreen.
Length: 23 minutes

The R2R figure eight is simply a modification to the beginner level Figure eight. It flows nicely into the Lady Guitar Wrap and Chopper. This is an excellent move, with work required on lead techniques and arm movement. It flows beautifully when mastered. So too with the lady present sequence. It weaves in an out of itself several times. Subtle hand-hold changes make it all work. The Salsa Manhattans is a nice close modification to the beginner manhattans and they set up for the Neck Lean to finsh an excellent routine.

  • Man Underpass
  • Steeping Chas
  • Snap Dip
  • Basket Escape
  • Double Hoop Exit

The Man Underpass is a nice little floorcraft move - linear and flowing accross from one side to the other. The Stepping Chars are a twisting move for the lady, led by the force of the hands. The knee lifts high as the lady twists each way. On the final twist she is wrapped right around, wrapping her leg around the guy's thigh and setting up for the snap dip. It's not very strenuous. The Basket escape is an unexpected exit from this dip, transferring the lady's weight further back and the double hoop exit is just a slight emphasis thrown in to a double handed return. You'll enjoy this routine. There's something for everyone.

The First Move Splice is a beautiful stretching lunge for the lady with her leg over the man's leg. The continuous lady wrapper is a slightly coplex floor sequence that flows nicely and has the crowd intrigued. The First Move Back pass (or behind-the-back-pass) is a variation of the beginner First Move and which maintains the flow of the lady's spin. You'll love this one.

This routine is danced very slowly in this demo. The moves lend themselves to flowing graceful movement and a slower tempo. the Fly By is a double handed twin turning move. The guy's turn is unusual and a little difficult to grasp at first. once mastered it makes for a unique and flwing move, exchanging sides. The Sway promenade uses a sway entrance and then a step and slide of the trailing foot in unison and side by side. I nive addition when the tempo allows time. The open Neck Break is an excellent spinning move with plenty of potential momentum. the standard Neck Break becomes a spin from the shoulder. You'll love this one at any tempo. the Sway places the lady's back to the man's front and as they lunge together, the arms are swayed across her front. A secret hand change allows the leader to exit the follower with double anticlockwise returns.

This is a thorough lesson that includes lots of technique information to help you do the moves well. The High Towels and Low Towels are oscillating lunges. The lady stands behind the man and they alternate sides. The Low Towels begin when the arms change from being above the shoulder to tucking in behind the man's back. This is good practice of hand changes and positive leads. The Double Delight Exit is move that can be extended to include double spins from the lady. The turns are Right to Right and then left to left with the man turning out and away form his partner in between. It's a fun move you can use any time. The Double Comb Frisk is a sexy and close move involving body rolls after the lady's hands are both lead over the man's head in a comb fashion. The Winder Manhattans are flowing movements that teach the possible arm positions with parallel (R to L and L to R) hands. The move flows across the stage as it mirror reverses. Traveling turns and understanding leads are the skills learned. The Lean and Caress is an easy little move where the lady leans against the man's side as he lunges. No pressure on knees or backs here. Enjoy!

The Man Basket Walks is a nice little surprise move that flows nicely. You don't expect him to wrap himself up and then lead the lady forward. A smooth turn together and then continued by the leader. The Flick spin often presents a problem. If you have much momentum the issue is how to stop it. A typical L to R hand hold wont do. A right to righ flat palm is better, but here we are using the man's chest as the landing place for the lady's hand to stop her spinning momentum. It has drama and sizzle. Then the parners step togther into one set of manhattan steps as the man pushes forward with only her hand on him. You'll love it! The turning comb sees the man turn away from the lady and walk away to pick up a blind back hand catch. he then pulls her through under a straight arm and they set up together for a Beginners Lady Spin with a double spin. Enjoy!

The Man and Lady Guitars are circular couple moves where one partner is in front of the other moving forward and the other is behind moving backward. They flow between each other and can be developed into some very smooth and flowing arm position changes. The Pretzel Astaire invites the lady to pass with her elbow first and her hand tucked behind her back. From there a Kiwi grip can be used to create an anticlockwise spin and set up for a number of moves. THe one we are using here in the Passion Drop. It is a dip with both the lady's arms fully extended into one ballroom grip and one Kiwi Grip. The man's legs are wide and straight. If done properly, this dip is nicely balanced with most of the lady's weight on the man's arms and little on her knees. The entry is a sudden drop which looks quite spectacular. Enjoy!

The Reverse Turn Lady Present uses a clockwise turn from a Right To Right lead down past the man's right side. This is quite unusual and, for many, a new skill to master. The Lady presents forward with the man's hand on her shoulder only - her arms are free. He leads her back by the shoulder and steps back into her line of travel. The Manhattan Switch Roll Across is a great little move, entering Manhattans from a ballroom Pass, on the third step, the leader's left hand switches to take the lady's hand on his right shoulder. Then using the shoulder blade he turns the lady clockwise again as he leads her across his front and turns his right hand out to catch her wrist. Then he lead a roll-across, which is like a flick spin but where the partners do stepping turns and change sides. The Lady Leg Slide is where after setting up for a frst move the lady's leg slides along the floor between the Man's legs. This routine is light and easy for intermediate dancers. You'll really enjoy the unique moves.

The Basket Caress Double Spin is a double handed move where the lady is wrapped into a basket on the man's left side. The arms then veil over her head and the hands separate, one caressing her arm as it travels forward to reconnect. the double spin exit is anti-clockwise and connected at all times. the Traveling Comb combines a travelling return with a standard beginner's comb. It's easy and looks great. The First Move Wrap requires a little balance as the lady turns out into a one-legged stance and the man provides support, pulling her down then into the Daydream Lean. Very elegant, nothing very dramatic - as the name suggests.

The basket changeover runs from a Basket wrap, the lady is then presented forward and is drawn back into the man's other side. This creates the momentum to stream directly into the half Teapot. This is a complex but flowing arm-focused move. The Springer sequence plays off the beginner move that you know and opens it out into a little free-footwork in unison. Looks great.

The bowlover is a nice setup move for several intermediate dips and lifts. Here we use it to setup for the Margarita where the lady is positioned behind the man with both hand holds. The Margarita is a blind turning move where the lady ducks under the Man's right arm as it comes from behind her and then the couple open out together. It is quite eye-catching. The First Move Shoulder Dip is also very striking. The lady's bodylines are created by her own torso strength since the support is only provided to her hand and shoulder. Long sleek lines result as she is dipped below the man's knee level. The Basket Snuggle is a very simple and intimiate pause move.

The Nelson Bowlover is a tricky floorcraft move where the man ducks under the lady's arm while simultaneously leading a spin by passing her hand around her waist. It goes well with slower tempos. That move flows out into a double spin and stepping straight into beginner's Manhattans only without a ballroom hold or frame. The First Move Turtle Turn Crunch is a move where the lady ducks under the man's arm as she spins, traveling towards him. He then gathers her up and together they swivel into a crunch with legs interwoven. It's smooth and flowing and will present a challenge for new intermediate level dancers.

www.jivemecrazy.com advanced ceroc moveswww.jivemecrazy.com Close Ceroc Moveswww.jivemecrazy.com ceroc hot movesThis Ceroc DVD introduces you to close moves in this genre. These close moves make for a more intimate appearance and often lend themselves to slower music. The techniques that are taught here by Mark will strengthen your confidence and posture for all types of dips. The first half of the disk is dedictaed to some of the more classic dips and it brings out style and posture tips for both men and women. The second half is dedictated to the closer moves - most of them being dips also. Watch the preview below to get a better idea of what we mean here by close moves (toward the end).  Generally the term "close" points out that there is contact between the torsos of the partners, often times legs are interlocked. These moves are not neccessarily lewd and should never be distasteful. Because of their nature, they are not moves that you can freestyle with a stranger and permission should be sought even from regular dance partners to make sure that your partner is comfortable. Jivemecrazy encourages courtesy at all points. You will find also that being courteous will make you a more desireable and sought-after dance partner in the long run. Close moves are most suited to very familiar partners and lovers. Your Teachers for this Ceroc DVD are: Mark Harding and Olivia Hadrick This is a studio disk with the complete focus being given to you - the camera. It is shot from a single viewpoint with close-ups inserted to clarify details. AUDIO: The audio is crystal clear

VIDEO: The video quality is good, the lighting is good also. this preview appears darker than the DVD in reality due to online compression codecs. You will see video inlays for close up - providing detail where clarity is required. This may be a hand hold or foot position. The aspect ratio is 4:3.

NAVIGATION:
The navigation allows you to each move in isolation or to play all. These are the moves included on this DVD:
  • First Move Safe Dip
  • First Move Dip
  • First Move Deep Dip
  • One Arm Dip

In this way the techniques for both are covered well. The structure is constant and the descriptions are well put. SUMMARY: This DVD includes only the instruction on these moves and they are each taught in isolation. You will add these moves to the flow of your dance in freestyle as you see fit. The level of difficulty is intermediate. There is some strength and flexibility required. The result is romantic, sexy, exciting both to dance and to watch danced.

  • Johnny Walker Sequence
  • Rotating Manhattans
  • Short backhander
  • Half Nelson Lean
  • Turtle Turn into Handless Dip

The Johnny Walker sequence is a great flowing sequence in a single dimension, as if the couple are on rails. The hands and arms change several times giving a great illusive impression. The rotating Manhattans vary this classic beginner move and add some momentum as well as a half turn while the couple remain in the ballroom hold. The Short Backhander is one of our favourite moves, but it's really just a lead in here to the Half Nelson Lean. Really unique and unusual in the arm positioning. It flows straight out into the Turtle Turn and the Handless Dip. It's really not hard. It's all in the lady's left arm and the man's right thigh. I'm sure you'll enjoy this routine.

  • Columbians with Leg Slide
  • Arm Bar Sweep
  • Pretzel Lock with Whip-Turn Exit

The Columbians are a cyclic cross-step, much like the CJs but done at half time. Once this sequence has ended the man stands in a wide stance and the lady lunges sliding her foot along the floor between the man's feet - Reminiscent of a classical tango move. The Arm Bar Sweep is a fantastic move where the lady falls, as it were, into a sweeping turn on one foot as she extends her left leg and hangs from her grip with the man's right arm. She exits the move by standing in the spin and washing off her momentum with her right hand on the man's chest. Lot's of drama here. The Pretzel Lock and Whip-Turn uses the pretzel intro to lock the couple together in their arms side by side. The man then sweeps his leg around in an arc, generating spinning momentum and then transfers that momentum into what can be a very fast spin for the lady.

The Bowl-over Manhattans use a bowling action and straight arms throughout. The Lady is brought to the man's side as she turns to face the same direction. Both their arms are straightened out facing the audience while the man stands behind the lady. The footwork is as per the Manhattans. The Weaving Hands is where the man leads the lady forward with diagonal hands causing her to cross step. The man offers each alternate hand underneath the previous one creating a flowing interlaced effect. The Splice Escape is the big move of this lesson. The entry is not easy as the lady turns on one foot offering her right leg to the guy with her back to him. She is wrapped up in his left arm but lunges forward to escape it and then back into a one-legged arch/dip. It's very dramatic.

The Chas are familiar to most Modern Jivers. They are small twisting choppy steps that the lady takes as the man offers the force to overcome the inertial of her twisting and send her back the other way. In this move the lady does these steps right around her partner until she is behind him. Then the exit involves a turn for her and an untwisting turn for him. The funky Octopus happens without letting go of either hand. the man wraps first into the octopus basket and then he escapes his arms by bending down through them and simultaneously loops them over her head. The couple roates during the whole move making it both fluid and interesting. the exit involves a nice winder wrap spin. The slam dip is a dramatic and sexy dip. It's quick and involves close proximity at the hips. It's a counterbalance dip with a double hand hold ballroom grips. Check it out. You'll love it!

  • Latin Bow Tie
  • Double Salsa Comb Checks
  • Funky French Travelling Returns
  • Bow

CLICK HERE

The Latin Bow Tie comes from a right to right hand hold. It's a turning move where the couple rotates slightly as well as the lady spinning individually. A brief hand change makes possible a big unwind anticlockwise for the lady. This time we're finishing off by snapping the lady into a lady guitar position. The lady then leads the double salsa comb checks. These moves don't break either hand hold throughout while both the man and the lady take turns at bending and turning through the arm-links. It weaves in and out cyclically and can be done at double pace after much practice. The Funky French traveling returns are simply a traveling return with a stop point as the partners pass each other. They stop for a beat and play up with some hip figure 8's. The Bow is a dramatic dip where the man uses just one hand on the lady's neck. It requires trust and strength. This move uses a bent back and so it requires that both partners be physically fit. Make sure you stretch first also.

The Snuggle Manhattans are a beautiful little modification to the simple Manhattan footwork making it into a two handed entry. Both the lady and the man dow a double handed return and the man leaves the lady's hand on his left shoulder as he turns into a ballroom dance position. The transition between the two sets of these Manhattans is equally modified consisting of double handed returns by both. You'll never do basic Manhattans again. The Jamaican Wrap is a great little balance move where the lady's feet are planted and the man sways her out in an arc while his body couterbalances by leaning the opposite way. Looks great! The Drop Kick Crossed is a quick drop by the lady while supported under the arms by the man's hands. She takes a little "genie" position while down. The Double delight is a great floorcraft sequence consisting of double returns in both directions led by opposite hands. It's not often that we do a left to left inward return like this in Modern jive.

Close Moves 2 Ceroc and Modern Jive
Price: 40.00 AUD
Type: DVD

Raise the Temperature - "Dirty Dancing" Style.
 
www.jivemecrazy.com Close Moves Ceroc DVDThis Ceroc and Modern Jive DVD covers a great deal of material. It teaches 4 sequences of moves that all include several close moves and mini-sequences containing close moves. There is a fair amount of material covered which is the dancing context for each close or dramatic move. This helps the student to enter and exit these moves with elegance and flow and it will add a lot to your repertoire that is outside the "close move" category. 

"Close Moves"  generally denotes that the torsos of the partners are in contact, legs are often interlocked and familiarity with each other's bodies is displayed. Of course you have to be careful who you raise the temperature with, but with the right partner, it is a whole lot of fun! Jivemecrazy encourages courtesy at all points. You will find also that being courteous will make you a more desireable and sought-after dance partner in the long run. Close moves are most suited to very familiar partners and lovers.

Your Teachers for this Ceroc DVD are: Nicky Haslam and Robert Winter

This is a studio disk with the complete focus being given to you - the camera. It is shot from a single viewpoint but also includes demonstrations of the moves with the dancer's backs to you. This helps students to orient the move in their minds.

AUDIO: The audio is crystal clear.

VIDEO: The video quality is good, the lighting is good - perhaps a little dark but clear to see all the details. The aspect ratio is 4:3.

NAVIGATION: The navigation allows you to watch each move in isolation or each sequence as a whole. These are the moves included on this DVD:
  • Y'Bota
  • Early Birthday Present
  • Winder-Manhattan Comb Side Bow
  • The Caress
  • Manhattan Walk
  • SS Leg Straddle
  • Double Return Close Dip
  • Side Wurlitzer Drape
  • Brisbane Lean - Lady Leg Slide
  • Lady Body Roll Up
  • Double Neck Drape
  • Neck Caress
  • Lady Fan Hip Spin

  • Rotating Grape
  • Every Man's Desire
  • Salsa Dips
  • Ginger Astaire Drop
  • Cross Handed Come Hither Rocks
  • Close Hold Shuffles
  • Argentinian Slide
  • and more

INSTRUCTION: The instruction on the DVD is clear and easy to understand and it is presented with a difference. Each move is danced through at musical pace and then replayed - sometimes several times in slow motion. Meanwhile, Nicky commentates with a voise over explaining what is happening and tips to watch for. It is thorough and seems an effective way to teach. Care is taken to pause the footage or replay where more explanation time is required.

SUMMARY: This is a great DVD for those wanting to bring closeness into their dancing. These are moves you probably wont learn in class. The DVD is more than adequate for you to learn these moves and then adapt them to your style. On a personal note: The style displayed within these moves reflects trends in Ceroc and Modern Jive which are evolving fast. These patterns and moves can be well used with recent style nuances also. Be creative and the sky is the limit.

The format is DVD PAL 4:3.
Length: Instruction runtime is approximately 40 minutes plus extras.

  • Open Neckbreak
  • Manhattan Meander
  • Catapult Walks with Double Dips
  • Huggle Dip

The open Neckbreak is a flowing variation of the beginner move where the lady continues her direction of movement past the man and turns clockwise immediately. Easy but smooth. The Manhattan Meander is a lovely footwork move along a straight line. Stylish arms work here. The catapult walks and Double Dip are first a unison footwork move with guy in front, then the dips are unusual in that one of the supporting hands is behind the man. The pair of dips look quite dramatic. Finally the huggle is a striking little mini dip rolling the girl out from a tight crunch position to a sleek lean.

  • Tea Pot Man Spin
  • Short Backhander
  • Arm Comb with Man Guitar Exit
  • Passion Drop

The Tea Pot Man Spin is another great move for extending the lead's spinning skills - unexpected by the audience. The Short Backhander is a great favourite, quick, flowing, a blur of spin and great tension for moving into all manner of other moves. The Arm Comb is a slower move, again with an unexpected twist and the Passion Drop is set up with a lean and so the lady drops through the arms of the man and into the dip position. This one is bound to become one of your favourites.

  • Springer walks - sweep kick and lunge
  • Lady Present, Man Basket Comb and Shimmy
  • Extended Manhattans x 2 with Head Chopper exit
  • Swan Dip Lift

This move is a bit retro for Modern Jive. It is a combined cross step walk coming from the Springer beginning (which is a beginner move). The sweep kick and lunge ends the prgression in a classical flavour. The Lady Present, through to the shimmy (depicted below) is mostly arm and handhold work with a nice flow. Extended Manhattans are as they suggest. Manhattans are a beginner move you will find in other lessons here. The Swan Dip Lift is probably the easiest lift. Please be careful though and make sure your fitness is good and your proportional power to weight ratio is strong before trying this one.

  • JC Combo
  • Basket Caress
  • Safe Dip

The JC Combo is a sequence of moves that flow together nicely. It starts with a double handed comb and opens out back to back to set up for some unison lunges (depicted below). The remainder is a combination of the lady turning as she travels around the guy and the guy moving to offset her travel. The arms wrap and unwrap nicely. The Basket Caress is a simple little variation on a basket wrap and the Safe Dip is among the easiest dips. It's quite low but very well supported on the guy's lap. It can be done quite fast and is then quite spectacular

  • First Move Hip Rolls
  • Stepping Chas with Skate Exit
  • Twisty Top Turn
  • Decapitator Dip

The First Move Hip Rolls is a cute and sexy little sequence. It's a modification to the first move with a strong lead and pivot from the Man, followed by unison hip rolls (or kicks) in close partner proximity. The Twisty Top Turn is a quick passover clockwise travelling return - loos quite effective and easy to do. the decapitator is a roll-in dip where the lady's head must bend down under the man's arm. This is quite a challenge for balance, but when you've mastered it it flows nicely and looks great.

  • Man Guitar into Figure Head

The Revolving Half Nelson is a spinning move for the man and with his head down under the lady's arm too. This makes it hard to balance and requires practice. the basket veil is a nice alternative to the first move, offering a lovely pose from the lady to the audience. Easy. The progression into the Sling Shot includes some interesting and alternate hand holds and points of tension producing good spins. The Figure head from a Man Guitar is a counterbalance move. It's difficult to get it balanced and smooth. Once you've nailed it, it's a great looking move.

  • Half Veil into Unraveling Frisk
  • Cuban Crossovers
  • Winder Roll-in Dip.

The first sequence here is heaps of fun, tangled up arms and fairly close proximity with the man positioned behind the lady and lunging in from side to side in unison. This all unravels into the long sweeping lines of the Cuban Crossovers, that span the stage and are led by both partners landing in a man kneeling and lady seated position. Then the setup for the winder dip has smooth flowing spins and arm tension for lots of momentum. This dip, once mastered and landing on the beat, looks absolutely terrific.

  • Reverse winder setup for
  • Shuffle Spins
  • Crouching Fig. 8
  • Matador

The Shuffle Spins are a great fluid sequence and although the man is moving around the lady on the floor, it seems that she is spinning in orbit around him. The Crouching Figure Eight is a great way to stop the flow of dancing and include some body rolls. It comes from a standard Figure Eight (beginner move). The Matador is a pose-focused variation of a First Move Dip. Very dramatic with suspense.

  • First Move Crossovers
  • Day-dream Lean
  • Lambadas
  • Rhonde Walks
  • Lambada Dips

The First Move Crossovers are a nice easy move starting from a first move base. The configuration is simple and if you work on the arms you can make it look graceful. The Day-dream Lean is a beautiful slow, listful move with the lady leaning against the man in a lunge as if against a street pole and day dreaming. Nice flowing arms again. The Lambadas are all about hips and shoulders and staying in close proximity with your partner in order to move together. The Rhonde Walks are an insertion into the Lambadas for variation and the Lambada Dips are a pair of small, shoulder height, head dips - a great opportunity to flick the hair back if it's out.

  • Slingshot wrap
  • Tea pot Exit
  • Winder Limbo
  • Tango Lunge

the Sling Shot Wrap is a great little tension move with plenty of momentum. It comes from a First Move Hook start and then uses a tense left arm from the lady and a wrist hold from the man. The Teapot exit is a flowing double handed interweave with the couple rotating. Many people find it challenging to make it flow and to get its complexity into muscle memory. Once it's there it becomes a well used addition to many double handed floorcraft moves. The Winder Limbo is a move where each partner arches under the other's arm as in Limbo, the guy starts from a reverese winder position. This move is a little complex also but the double arching motion looks great. Finally the Tango lunge is a very tidy little move with great lines. The lady's back is to the guy and her left leg is wrapped up around his waist/thigh. It requires some flexibility to extend this lunge and it must be done gently until partners understand each other's comfort zones.

  • Funky Bicep lock
  • Cjs - Cross Behind
  • Hand Dip

The funky Bicep Lock comes from a Conan (beginner move) start. The man takes the lady's bicep as she sweeps her right leg around and both fall to one knee while back to back. Looks great. The CJs are a very rhythmic twisting move that relys upon tension in the arms as both bodies use each other's inertia to twist on half beats. The Hand dip is graceful and elegant with long lines and nothing to obscure the lady's lines as the man doesn't have any arms in front of her.

  • DD Seat
  • Continuous Pretzel
  • Propellor Dip

The DD Seat comes from a Springer setup and flows very smoothly as the lady crosses behind the guy and spinning in front of him is seated onto his knee as he kneels on his left knee. The continuous pretzel is a fantastically spectacular move. Arms are folding within each other as each pretzle flows into the next. This move can be cycled and it can be danced at double time (with care). The propeller Dip is where the man's arms swing in propeller fashion over the lady's head as he turns twice. On his final tun his hand comes to rest on her shoulder, leading her down into a crouch dip. It gives the illusion that she has been hit by the propeller and knocked down if you can make the transition smooth and swift enough. We're sure you'll enjoy this one.

The Agitator is a great move where the lady get's wrapped up in her own arms while spinning with a double lunge exit. The Coffee Pot is a guy thing where , for once, the guys spin while the girls wait. The Switching Man Guitars is a slow down move, quite simple. The Latin Kick, n Lunge is quite difficult with balance required, but the result is quite striking.

  • Rumba Lean Splice
  • Traveling First Move
  • First Move Chas and Turns
  • Winder Dip

This first move is a very stylish extended counterbalance lean, and it is easier to do well than it looks. These first move variations add a little spice to some beginner framework and the final dip is quite challenging, though not very strenuous.

  • Ballroom Turns
  • Manhattan Chas
  • Salsa Comb Checks
  • Lady Kneel Lift
  • Latin Leap Exit

This first move is a very easy and gracefull flowing move which you can add your own style to. The Manhattan Chas and the Salsa Comb Checks are floorwork which is a little complicated but very stylish. The lift is a full-weight lift, though the balance is fairly easy. Only attempt this move if you're very fit - no bad knees please. The final pose is a sexy lean. (depicted here)

  • Return Wrap
  • Basket Wrap Changeover
  • Spin Exit into Lady Guitar Walks
  • Catapull
  • Pivoting Ballroom Drop (this is like a "Dive to Death" but what a corny move name that is :-) )

These first few moves are floorcraft moves, focussing on couple proximity, timing and rhythm. The Return Wrap is quite unusual - and more difficult that it seems. The Basket Wrap changeovers can be modified in many ways and are very elegant. The exit into the Lady guitar position is an unexpected finish to basket wraps and adds interest. The catapull (getting it's name from the Catapult) requires some interesting hand hold changes and flows nicely out into the lady checks. the final dip is interesting because it begins without a confirmed hand hold. The hands slide down the partners arms as the dip progresses. Hope you enjoy. (depicted here)

  • First Move Backpass
  • The Basket Escape
  • Arm Fan and Low Towels
  • Basket Neckbreak

First move back pass - a nice flowing spinning variation to the first move, The Basket Escape - leading into the Arm Fan. This is a really nice unique little combination that has people wondering how you did that with your arms. Some low towels lead into the Basket Neckbreak which looks like the lady has been wrapped up in both your arms three times and then she is unwound like a spinning top. Very catchy move. Hope you enjoy.

  • Cross Hipchecks
  • Double Handed Traveling Returns
  • frontward Frisk
  • Chicken Wing Double Dip

Cross Hip checks - a lady styling move with weight transfer, double handed traveling returns. This is a deceptive move with both hands seeming to stay in contact while the lady turns multiple times. It's all in the handwork and really an eye catcher. It falls out nicely into the frontward Frisk which is a body contact move, has a medium level of intimacy and scope to be very sexy. Finally the Chicken Wing Double Dip, is a lot grander than the name suggests. (image below)The Chicken Wing is a particular arm configuration, the dip that results is a two movement deep dip with long extended arm lines and requires medium to light strength. Hope you enjoy.

  • Pretzel - Teapot Exit
  • Lady Propeller
  • Long Lean Dip

Pretzel - Teapot Exit. This move begins with the beginner pretzel and then flows into the second half of the teapot. It is quite a complicated sequence with the couple rotating as well as the lady doing a fair amount of spinning individually at the same time. The second move is the Lady Propeller. This move looks great from front on. It involves mostly arms with some stationary hip motion to add the feel. It's quite deceptive and makes you look again to see what's happening. The last move is a very easy dip with a nice linear set up sequence. Nice lines, glamourous finish little strength required. Don't forget to tell your friends about jivemecrazy.com

  • Man Half Nelson, Lady Half Nelson
  • Lady/Man Open Neckbreak Spins
  • Handless Manhattans
  • Latin Lean and Dip

The Half Nelsons are a bent down spinning move where the elbow is locked behind the back. The Man and Lady take turns in doing and leading the same move. This flows out nicely into the open neckbreak spins which are much like the ending of a beginner neckbreak except that the man is also lead through this section by the lady and must learn to spin 1 3/4 turns fluidly. Handless manhattans are a fun move allowing for personal style and the Latin Lean and Dip is a spectacular move that is set up nicely from a body lean from which the lady falls off the man's hip and into the dip position. Not terribly easy to do at first. (depicted beside and below at two stages)

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL MODERN JIVE: This dance lesson includes (A light dip crunch and a fully extended dip with two hands - no back bending for the man or lunging in this dip):
  • Galvo Wave
  • Hip Rolls
  • Banana Smoothie
  • Pretzel with Double Dips

The glavo wave is a flowing arms move that is done in unison with the lady in front and gentle lunges both ways - quite slow and graceful. The hip rolls are basic dancing on the spot for something different. The Banana Smoothie and a superb sequence coming from a man guitar. It requires balance and counter-balance and ends with a step accross and crunch (not a dip). The Pretzel double dips use a beginnner Pretzel to setup for a double handed double dip. The first is a lean in leader's elbow on the lady's neck, then satnding her up, her head tucks under the arm and flicks back into a full arched, fully extended dip. Very dramatic. An absolute favourite.

This is a long lesson with plenty of value for money. Some great techniques and tips are embedded in the teaching.

Nuroc Rock 'n' Roll DVD for Beginners


SPECIAL DEAL
www.jivemecrazy.com West Coast Swing DVDIf you purchase this product (left) along with the Beginners Rock and Roll DVD, at the same time, your postage for both DVDs is FREE!




This Rock 'n Roll DVD by C and Ms Dance Studio (aka Nuroc dance Company) is a studio DVD taught by Charles and Michelle Gil. Once again, this DVd's strength is the detail of instruction for both the leader and the follower. Both instructors teach the moves individually and linked with their partner.

Your Teachers for this West Coast Swing DVD are: Charles and Michelle Gil.
This couple are very experienced dancers in several styles.

AUDIO: Instructors are not wearing mics and the mic seems to be on camera. Even though the room is small the first impression is a bit hissy. The instruction is still easy to hear and understand as you can tell from the preview.

VIDEO: The video and lighting are good. The background is uncluttered and the choice of costume provides high contrast, making discerning the patterns and movement easy. The aspect ratio is 4:3

NAVIGATION: The navigation allows you to select one of the eight sections taught but there is no option to jump to the count through or the demo etc.

INSTRUCTION: The instruction is conducted by both Charles and Michelle. Both of these instructors teach clearly and slowly. They take the time to show you the moves from behind, so that you can orient your own footwork as you learn. It is great to see couples having the lady teach the ladies and the man teach the men. Very easy to learn from this teaching. Each move is taught through with a count, to music and without a count to help the student start to count in their own mind. There are 8 sections containing 1 move or pattern each. They total over 45 minutes of instruction. Don't be fooled into thinking the number of moves in a DVD is all that counts. this is a beginner DVD and is suitable for people who have never dance Rock 'n' Roll before. Master these eight moves and you are well and truly dancing.

SUMMARY: This is a great way to start out with Rock 'n' Roll. Build your confidence before you go public, or consolidate and deepen what you have been learning in class. You're sure to gain lots of satisfaction if you follow this DVD thoroughly. See the full cover here

VIDEO: The video and lighting are both excellent. The aspect ratio is 16:9.

NAVIGATION: The navigation allows you to select. The routine danced to music, the instruction of individual moves, and the slow motion dance through. In addition there is a section called footwork for each routine where you see only the feet. This may be useful for refinement and revision but I found that the full height footage was ample to decifer the footwork.

INSTRUCTION:
The instruction is conducted by both Mark and Simone. The teach at a very comfortable pace; not too slow but including all the relevant tips to help you really get it. There are overlays of close-ups of hand holds to help you see the detail where neccessary. You will have no trouble following this instruction which also has a fairly relaxed and positive atmophere about it. SUMMARY: This is a great intermediate disk with plenty of good content taught well and captured at high quality.

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL MODERN JIVE: This dance lesson includes (No dips or drops):
  • Basket Caress
  • Agitator with Double Lunges
  • Carousel

The Basket Caress is a linear move where the lady is wrapped into the man's right arm and then his left hand leads her right hand up over her head as if to lift a veil from her face. The hands part behind the neck and caress one down each side of the lady's torso to meet in front. This happens twice as the weight is transfered from front to back similar to Manhattan footwork. The agitator is a lovely flowing move coming from a R to R palm check. A fast clockwise double turn wraps the lady up in his arms. Looks great. One of our favourites. The Carousel is a free spinning move which is fueled by spinning momentum and tension in the arms. An excellent move to forward your intermediate skills in spinning, transfering momentum between partners and timing. Check it out. you'll love it.

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL MODERN JIVE: This dance lesson includes (A medium/light dip and a light lean):
  • Push returns
  • Short Backhander
  • Screwdriver and Lean
  • Roll-in Dip

The Push Returns are a little modification to a standard anti-clockwise return. The follower is led to move past the leader as his spare hand pushes on her lower back to continue the pass. the both whip around to face each other. The Short Backhander is an all time favourite move with spin and momentum as the follower passes from one side, spinning right across the front of the leader and the hands change behind her back. It's a blur and a flurry of motion - great to watch! The screw driver is a pivoting wind up move where the arms become wrapped up and the shoulders interlock for the lean. After the screwdriver is unwound it's time to set up for the roll-in dip, a flowing and smooth, yet stable and relatively safe dip that's not too hard on the knees if you do it right. A great move to keep in your repertoire.

This is a long lesson with plenty of value for money. Some great techniques and tips are embedded in the teaching.
