B1.5.0 – Elastics demo

<< Back to Basics 1 syllabus

The first video below is an example of using one elastic to help develop a sense for following another persons body in an abstract way.
The key points to remember are: –

  • One person closes their eyes and tries to follow the movements of the other person.
  • Move slowly in the beginning.
  • Help the other person by coming to a stop every now and then.
  • Make sure the person with their eyes closed maintains the tension on the elastic.

The next video below is similar to the first except that now you will be working with two elastics.  It you are the person with your eyes open make sure to move the two elastics in different directions to each other, stopping with one while continuing with the other and so on.  This will help the other person get a good reference for following two sets of motion simultaneously.
