What moves work best with each other?

Filed under Aerobic

When making up routines you can make your life a lot easier for yourself if you know which moves work best together.

No matter if you are a seasoned instructor or a beginner there is always a situation when you are caught in a move where you know that unless you march, tap or trip up you are not going to get to your next movement in a smooth fashion.

One of the easiest ways to rectify this is to know which moves easily transition into others.  This can be best described in the following diagram;


As you can see movements such as neutral moves, where both feet are on the floor, and any moves that come from marches, such as v steps, mambos etc can flow into any other movement with relative ease. 


The problem arises when you try to go from a step touch movement, such as step knee or leg curl (where you step your foot on the floor on count 1), to a lift step movement, such as knee lift (where you lift the knee on count 1)!

What you need to do is add a movement which flows from a step touch movement first, such as march/v step/ mambo/ pivot turn, and then go into your lift step move.

Using the above chart will save you hours of time in working this out, as well as hours of frustration!
