Twins Turns Part 4

The Windmill is taught on this video.

This is the 4th part of the Twins Turns Series. After I started filming the video, I realized that there were two more turns that might be fun for you to learn. So I decided to do those moves on this video. Check out the series on Combinations for information on combining weaves, spins, and turns.

This video has the Reverse Crossed Arms Turn and the Forward Spin Turn into a Windmill and then into a Low Reel.  The Windmill is the same move as a High Reel.  The Windmill is taught on this video.

My ceiling prevents me from doing a High Reel with my arms extended.  If you are outside and try extending your arms on this move, then your wrists automatically move close together.

    Pam, yeah, can you tell I skipped over the low reel turn and thought I’d investigate this video?!? LOL! One question, what should one do after they get into the fancier reverse turn where you end up with your arms crossed in front of you and the hoops spinning forward? It looks cool, but I’d like to know how to gracefully get out of the position you end up in! LOL!

    The move you’re doing at around 8:00 is called a Windmill. I love it. It involves reels though, so I may not go there!

    BTW, how do you rewind and fast forward the videos? I can’t do it. If I want to go back a bit and replay a section I can’t. I have to stop it and then press play and then it goes back to the start. I’ve tried just dragging the cursor back, but it won’t go, and I’ve tried clicking on the fast forward and rewind buttons and I can’t get them to work either. Any idea?

      I’ll make a video of getting out of that crossed arms move gracefully. The easiest way is to move the hoop in the left hand down under the other hoop to the left side of your body. Then turn your body to the left while the left hoop leads the way with the right hoop following. You should wind up facing the opposite direction of when you started and the hoops will be in position to start the Reverse Weave. Got that?????? LOL I will definitely make a video. A picture is worth a thousand words 🙂

      The easiest way to get the videos to rewind and fast forward is to download them. Let me know if you need help doing that.

        Thanks, Pam! I’ve been working on the “cross over turn, and I get it! I’m not overly graceful with it yet, and I need to work on keeping the hoops away from my body once I get into the cross over position. They keep wanting to get too close and then they whap my thighs or hips and stop! LOL! I also (believe it or not) am getting that High Weave Turn (is that what it’s called?) turning to the right. I can easily do the hands separately, but putting them together is really messing with me! I’m glad to have these two moves to work on! (I’m still shelving the low reel turn! LOL!) I notice when I play the videos in full screen, I can rewind and fast forward them.

        BTW, Pam, you asked in this video if we wanted to see a tutorial with arms crossed and going into weaves (I think that was how you phrased it!). The answer is YES! I haven’t checked out our Combinations tutorial yet because I don’t think I’m ready for it, so perhaps you’ve already covered some of this, but I would definitely like to see combination ideas – weaves into turns into other weaves or whatever you can come up with!

          Thanks for all your comments and input. The high weave is called the Windmill. It is included in the Combinations Part 2 and will be included in future Combinations Tutorials.
          I have a long list of tutorials on combinations and it is growing everyday. There seems to be no end to the number of moves I want to teach.
