    Default Double Cane!

    Hey everyone! I'm so excited! I just have to share! I found out that my dance class is going to start learning how to dance double cane! I have never seen this danced before. Has anyone else seen double cane or perform/study it themselves? Okay, back to work for me!

    I've seen a double cane performance in theatre (it was a dance inspired in the dance of the gawazee) and I think also in the web but now I can't remember the right link ...I will search!
    I tried one time but I found it quite diffcult to control two canes at the same time and dance too ... but I love this kind of dance!

    I think double cane is easy, once one can twirl the cane in either hand, doing two at once is not so hard. Much easier, certainement, than juggling sheeps.

    Perhaps you should consider twirling two shepherd's hooks using sheeps for scenery. Once in a while, you could hook up a sheeps and fling it into the audience, sorta like Elvis used to do with his sweaty silk scarves.

    Honestly, I'd never heard of it either. As soon as I found out that I'd be learning it, I immediately saw myself getting the canes tangled behind my back and smacking myself in the back of the head with the tangled canes.... But nonetheless, yay! What a learning adventure this is going to be... Oh boy.

    heheh, you don't want him to get any trouble with the protection of animals, Shanazel? If he would do that, I wouldn't dare being part of the audience (how much does a sheep weigh?)

    I once saw DaVid do a demonstration of double cane. Looked cool.

    My instructor likes to tell the tale of the double cane dancer who lost control of one of her cane which flew over the heads of the audience and smacked loudly on the rear wall.

    The VERY next dancer came out doing some kind of double SWORD routine, also twirling the swords...

    The hall emptied instantly!
