I'm in the process of writing a book on the ins and outs of
choreography. The last chapter is a glossary of uncommon moves used
in contras. I remember, maybe 15 years ago, someone wrote a dance
that used a move called a hockey stick. Does anyone know the dance/
know the move? My memory is that dancers walk across the set single
file and then turn a quarter and move either up or down.
Also, I may have discovered some regional differences in the move
cast off. I realize that cast off isn't done as much as it was many
years ago, but I wanted to know how you do it in your area. Say the
ones go down the hall, return and cast off with the twos. Do the
twos act as a pivot point? Or do the twos back up while the ones
cast (the pivot is between the dancers).
Thanks for you help!!!!
