    Default Create a Combo Cards

    I was looking into those Create a Combo Cards & thinking they might be an interesting & fun way to get in practice while focusing on combos. Does anyone use them at home for their own practice? Do you like them? Did you order them directly from Gia?

    Hi there
    I don't have Gia's ones, although the peek I took at them looked fabulous - but I do use a set of cards with a single movement on them, shuffle the cards and pull out two or three then I either drill or improvise with those movements in as many combinations as I can think of. I think it's fun, it's quite challenging and it has helped me restrict the number of movements I use so I don't go nuts showing off 'all my tricks' in one dance! It's also easier to remember the combinations when there are only two or three to choose from, you get creative with things like speed, height changes, direction changes, and adding undulations or shimmies etc.
    I think ordering them directly from Gia is the best idea - no middleman (or woman!) and she's lovely.

    adiemus ~ thanks for the reply. you don't think the cards might be to advanced for a begginer BD? Or is it something that is great no matter what your level?

    Just for those of us who have never heard of these cards, like me, what exactly are they?

    I bought Gia's set and they're fantastic for a beginner (me!). I love using them when I practice and it keeps me reminded of what the moves are and their names. It helps keep practice mixed up and fun. The art is fab too!

    Please do give feedback! I've been intrigued by these combo cards, but have trouble seeing how 20 cards would be enough to be useful.
