This will be a two hour leviwand intensive course. All levels welcome, as we will begin with the basics and fundamentals, working our way up to advanced leviwand manipulation. Starting with the basics and the importance of using your whole body as well as the importance of the illusion with this prop. We will discuss correction moves and how to fix mistakes fluently. We will get a chance to play with all three styles of leviwand manipulation; traditional, contact, and tech and how to transition smoothly between all of these styles. We’ll talk about different ways to break planes in the most effective and clean way. Starting with traditional wanding we’ll work on finding flow and really using this tool as part of us, instead of a prop. Learning tricks is cool, but learning how to do tricks with a little pep in your step, or twist in your hip is even cooler. Moving on to contact wand flow, we will learn core contact moves. Translating specific things from baton twirling and contact staff. While working with tech wand flow, we will use our clock space and numerous isolations variations along with a handful of tosses. Finally to finish off the course we will touch on double leviwand manipulation. Whether your style is more dancy or techy, learn how to balance out your flow and move with both hands. Well play with dancing along with learning how to translate poi moves to double wand tech.
