I taught a workshop on this exact topic. I'll send you my notes when next
I'm at my computer. (Saturday, perhaps).

I would like to teach some of my more advanced dancers
some flourishes or
other embellishments to contra dance. I'd like to start with things that
are easy and obviously that can be smoothly integrated into a dance.
Simpler is better and I am especially looking for "extras" that can be
done singly rather than within a couple. For example, simply twirling
during a do-si-do, or little "meanwhile" things you can do while waiting
out as your partner allemandes with their diagonal.
I've found some YouTube videos, but they tend to be for more elaborate
technique than I am interested in introducing at this time.
Thanks for any thoughts, tips, support, or warnings! :)
