Coming back after a weeks break, we kick off with “How Deep is Your Love”, the consistent start up, getting everyone breathing together, moving together as a group, getting the energy up, and the feet moving in rhythm, turning, stretching, dipping.
Following the warm-up, we set out to complete the work on “Sorry”; reviewing the set choreography of twisting side steps, quick step changes, ripples, twist swings and inversions. We hadn’t spent so much time on this part last session, so we practice it in a bit more detail. The inversions are improving!
Each group has time to revisit, review and revise their composition. There is a lot of variety in the choices each group has made. But each group succeeds in reconstructing their phrase, and we are able to put the entire sequence together, combining the set choreography with their compositions, and perform it several times.
The dessert? “Whip Whip Nae Nae” of course!
