1. Transitions - (45 min)
If there is one thing about my gloving that I stand behind, it is my seamless transitions in my gloving light show. I will teach you my approach to creating and freestyling connections between moves.
These same techniques allow you to break free of glover's block and begin to build your own combinations, perhaps even your own concepts!
2. Competitive Mentality - (60 min)
Competitive Light Shows are vastly different from the average festival face melt. They require glovers to display all of their capabilities to balance various attributes and express them through their own show. Winning a competition requires much more than working on your moves. There are still nerves to overcome, and strategy (yes, you read that right...strategy) to consistent placing.
This lesson plan was a collaboration between [PLL] Vex, IGC 2016 Champion, and myself. Here I will discuss preparation both during as well as BEFORE a competition to make sure you walk in with 0% nerves and 100% confidence.
3. Thumb Work - 45 min
Your thumbs can be a fifth finger or a counterpart to your fingers as a group. This class will show you the techniques used in order to build your own concepts based around your thumbs. Additionally, your thumbs can be used to correct and clean up a lot of the concepts you already use.
Thumbs are key to human evolution. My thumbs were the source of an evolution in my gloving.
A few words from your coach:
During the time I have been gloving, I have seen this art bloom from the stigmatic, festival-only, free-for-all to the refined, practiced and beautiful dance form it has become.
My strengths lie in my transitions, musicality, commitment to performance and my ability to structure my style to fit any scorecard in competition.
I am here to teach you what I can. Take a lesson with me and you will walk away with tools to discover your own perfect gloving light show.
