Here's some videos I'm putting up specifically for our dancers at Waegook Cook in Gumi. These are most of the moves that we learned and practiced last week. We'll review them of course this coming week but we want to spend as little time on them as possible in order that we can move forward to other, more exciting patterns to spice up or choreography.
Here you'll see guapea (AKA: guapeando), dile que no, exhibela and enchufla (AKA: enchufe or enchufle). The only one I couldn't find just now was 'para el media' (or maybe it' s 'medio.......I don't remember :-).
Please review these and try to absorb as much of the flavor as you can. A couple of things I'd like you to particularly notice:
1. Notice that they don't bounce up and down......all the 'action' is in the knees and hips.
2. Notice that they don't take big steps but rather only enough of a step to make their hips move and to be able to feel the rhythm.
3. Notice that their knees bend when they're moving their legs. It hard to describe in just words but it is part of that 'latin hip movement' thing that all the teachers talk about. It sometimes seems strange at first and then suddenly.......you feel it and get it!
