1/2 Matrix Horizontal Pivot

Sandy

Does exactly what it says on the tin. If you cock up a matrix this is a good way of recovering without looking like you cocked it.

Antispun Fishtail Fountain

Sandy

This came about through me and Tim messing about with antispin contact ideas and trying to work out how to antispin a fishtail. We came up with the antispin fishtail fountain and realised it could be done without antispin (obviously). Surprisingly the antispin version is easier as it doesn't try to fly off your hand as much. Starting in reverse do 1 beat behind you then go straight into a 180 fishtail carry downwards and in a straight line. Because it's antispin you need to move pretty fast in straight lines. When you get to the other side move your hand straight up and then straight across. This needs to be done in 1 beat. Try going through this holding the staff to your hand before fishtailing it to get used to feeling the path of spin.

Antiturn Matrix

Sandy

A tiny bit easier than a matrix because you are turning into the staff. Look at the points you need to start turning, they are when you start leaning back to get it under the arm. Again very hard to get smooth.

The Steve

Sandy

Originally invented by Mushy Pea Steve this move was refered to as "that move Steve does" and became known simply as The Steve. Hold your arm out in front of you with the staff a little above your head. Spin the staff towards you so it will roll down your arm and release it just before the staff is pointing straight in front of you. As the staff rolls down your arm straighten your arm a little to allow a smoother roll and raise your arm up. When it gets to your shoulder raise that shoulder and drop the other so it keeps rolling. As it comes onto your second arm raise that arm with the staff to give it the momentum to get back to your hand.

Angel Rolls

Sandy

Basically like an extended halo roll. Make sure the staff rolls down your arm and the spin isnt too fast. When the staff is on your back turn back like you would with a halo roll and hold out your arm, it should roll down the inside of your arm.

Front Side Steve

Sandy

This is the second half of the full steve. Try to get the staff as close to your throat as possible before switching arms.

Matrix

Sandy

The matrix. It's hard. That's why everyone loves it. You can do the matirx in 2 ways, starting on the neck like I do or starting on the shoulder like meg does here. To distinguish the difference I call this version a full matrix because it goes fully around your body and not just under both arms. I personally prefer the full matrix (well I would wouldn't I) because I think it looks nicer but it's all a matter of oppinion. The secret to getting a matrix is to really lean. It takes a while to get and takes even longer (a lot longer) to get it solid. As with everything practice, practice, practice.

Continuous Antispun Conveyor Belt

Sandy

These are a nice varient of conveyor belts. First learn to do continuous. When the staff is falling off your last elbow, raise that elbow and bring your other elbow underneath to catch it by sort of hugging yourself. Give the staff a bit of a pop as it comes off so as to give yourself a little more time to catch it. When you've got that add the antispin by moving each point of the move to the antispin points (watch the video).

5 Beat Fishtails

Sandy

Fishtail, then as you come back in front twist your hand inwards and carry the staff across holding it between your thumb and your wrist.

Behind the Back Fishtails

Sandy

Pretty self explanitory. That doesn't mean they're easy though. You can cheat a bit by pushing the staff around with your body.

Fishtail Angel Roll

Sandy

Watch the point where fishtail goes into the angel roll. It's just as you would be bringing the fishtail back to behind you. Bring your arm up to break the spin of the fishtail and push the staff into an angel roll.

Foot Fishtails

Sandy

As you can see in the vid the right leg works very much like the left arm in a conveyorbelt. When you get the staff onto the foot you need to turn into the staff so you end up in backwards fishtails. Once your into the fishtails you really need to turn your whole body each half beat to get it smooth (no easy task when your balancing on one leg and trying not to make jerky movements with the other).

Continuous Steve

Sandy

Do a Steve and as the staff is coming up your arm cross your arms so the arm with the staff on it is behind. Transfer the staff onto your other arm. Meg does an interesting variant passing from her forearms Continuous Steve detail: Forearm Transfer

Starting in reverse do 1 beat behind you then go straight into a 180 fishtail carry upwards. As you come out of the 180 do 1 beat of forwards fishtail behind you and pull it out into a low 180 carry back the way you came. Repeat.

Holy Trinity

Sandy

This is an angel roll with a jesus in the middle, and since a jesus consists of a halo roll and a front side halo roll hence holy trinity (angel, jesus and halo). When the angel roll is coming across your back you need to turn quite fast to get into the jesus. If you get the jesus the exit isn't too hard, just hold out your arm like you would normally for an angel roll.
