    These are all very helpful tips and things to think about. I'm working on choreographing a new piece that involves wings.

    Using the wings without the sticks is another option for a different, softer look. Less dramatic in some ways, but could be beautiful.

    As for videos, Ayshe is the Queen of wings:

    But how to gracefully pick them up after? I keep finding picking up props after dancing a bit disgracefully looking.

    Pick them up by the neck between the wings (so back & centre) and let them flutter along behind you.

    I like the drama of a wings exit (did you notice?!)

    Pretty close to the top reason for my undying love of them, that's for sure!

    I'm slightly hijacking this thread to ask if anybody uses these mini-wings that I've seen at Dahlal.com. As a petite person I am overwhelmed by the idea of the standard wings...



    Might be a nice way to shake up people's expectations of Isis Wings in a routine?
    Rats, the link doesn't work. Anyway, my daughter bought me a set of child's wings last year for Christmas because I'm small. They're great in places where space is confined. As for "normal" wings, you can roll up the neckband 3 or 4 times to make them shorter.
