    I might be thinking of a different move. But after reading your post I played with the move I am thinking of. You can indeed step either in the direction your circle is moving or the opposite direction. I think I tend to do it in the same direction as stepping, but either way works just as well. I think you can coordinate your steps slightly different than what I earlier described as well. It is just a matter of coordinating the two just like any other type of "layered" move. If you find a clip, please let me know...

    Well I really thought it was travelling the opposite direction but I wouldn't argue that...that's one reason I wanted a video for further explanation to make sure I understood right...when I got home from the workshop I tried it and felt like I could possibly be doing it but I had watched one of the girls at the workshop that was really good kept messing it up so I figured I must not be doing it correctly...but I guess even more experienced dancers can have trouble with simple things? It isn't on the Magnificient Moves...if i do find it on any clips I'll let y'all know.

    Hi all - just adding my £0.02p worth to the discussion

    Samsied - the move you're describing, I know as a 'spiral' - you do a flat hip circle, and your feet are stepping in a circle in the same direction as the flat hip circle.

    sstacy123 - the move you're describing I do, but didn't have a name for before - corkscrew makes perfect sense to me though, as a description. You do a flat hip circle, and your feet are stepping in the opposite direction to the hip circle, which produces a different feel to the spiral.

    Sorry, I don't know of any videos where these moves are demonstrated

    Well I bought the Magnificent Moves without emailing her...I'm a DVD fiend so it wasn't going to be the end of the world if it wasn't on there...I didn't see anything on that DVD that looked like what I saw at the workshop but I could have missed it...my attention gets off track sometime...but I didn't get the Advanced Oriental so I don't know. I'll have to email on that.
