Poultry In Motion

During last Thursday's freestyle group lesson, Dance Coach started us off with power threes. Not just any power threes, but ones with the arms up over the head.

"You enter the three as you do," Dance Coach did the entry to the three, "then as you skate back, you raise your arms up. up. gracefully up." He then lowered his arms as he entered the back cross, "And after you do the back cross, and we are gliding backwards, you raise them up again."

We all took a try at it. FO3, arms up on the back edge, lower arms, back cross, raise arms again.

Dance Coach shook his head. "No, no, you are  much too stiff. You turn, you raise your arms gracefully," he gave us an impish look, "then you throw the chicken."

 His arms arced out upwards from his shoulders....and I swear all of us went "Bwak, bwak!"

If someone new ever joins this class, they're going to be soooo confused.


  1. They'll be like "What the cluck was *that*?"

  2. So funny, Babbette! Sounds like you guys are having a blast!
