    Pestles are like cursive E's. If you are moving to the right, step out with your right foot, bringing your butt and hips to the right, bring your feet together and...Oh never mind, I am going to go draw a picture, ya'll cant laugh

    X is left, O is right, step, swing, together, step, touch. You'll see it in the picture.

    oh we do "pestles" too with a sweeping arm move that moves in opposite direction of the body.

    we just call them circle e's.

    there are moves we dont actually have names for but sound cues.

    its funny how for each particular class 'dah dah dah, bump, 1-2-3 shoulder shoulder step step turn' means something totally different. it means nothing but in the same class we all know what our teacher means when we are running through a choreography.

    Thanks, nightdancer! Your drawing is pretty good, I can almost figure out what it is without standing up and trying it out

    I also checked out what the word pestle means in real life, it makes a lot of sense now!

    I like the moroccan shimmy, saidi walk, and hagallah walk (sorry if I spelled these wrong). Sometimes I hate what I'm working on, then when I 'get it' I decide that I love that move - human nature and all.

    I really like learning new combinations.

    Combinations... yah this is my main problem! I am fine with moves but to put it all together- everything just falls apart!
