Second Rehearsal

Posted: February 17, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hello again Colby!

Today we began with some much needed stretching, focusing on the areas of our bodies that we utilize the most in Float.  Following a brief warm up we ran through the piece and chose certain phrases to work on.  We tried to improve our transitions between major phrases, requiring rapid repeated viewings of the youtube video.

We continued to work on the over-the-back lift and tried it after a few times without a mat.  We discovered that if Ellie provides a small hop then the rest of the rotation is smoother and easier to execute.  We are starting to incorporate smaller details into the bigger detail; however, we still have a long way to go.  We are really looking forward to having access to a viewing of the entire piece to find out what happens!

A few days ago we received an email from Julian expressing his philosophy of his work.  This provided us with a new insight toward our movement and interpretation.  We are skyping with him next thursday so he will be able to see our progress up to this point and give us comments and feedback!

We completed our rehearsal with some message therapy and muscle and joint exercises.

Until next time!

Ellie and Logan
