Cowboy to Splits Down Behind on Aerial Hoop is a simple and delightful sequence. There are a few snappy transitions and the opportunity for some dramatic tempo changes. This sequence also has a lot of big shapes. These sort of sequences are great for teaching a couple of valuable performance concepts.
The first idea is fairly simple, training students to fully extend through their limbs. Making big shapes look as big as possible is a skill that for some students is fairly intuitive and for other students it can be quite challenging.
A more advanced concept that can be trained in this sequence is teaching students how to interact with the audience or camera. This means students should always face or open up toward the audience in their big shapes.
