Yesterday in rehearsal at the park with 8 awesome and enthusiastic dancers, we had a revelation. Our WHD Dance is going to be performed in a circle. Everyone faces in toward the center. We’ll position a camera on the inside and one on the outside. This makes the dance look and feel great.
The one tricky bit is that you have to remember which direction to move (grapevine left, pivot right) or risk running into someone coming the other way. The backwards steps for the weave increase the size of the circle and the forward steps return everyone to place.
I can’t wait to try this with the larger group. If there are enough dancers, we might even have concentric circles.
