Exercise 2 | Progressives (Partnership)
After you articulate Progressives independently, now it’s time to do so with your partner.
In partnership, start with side moves back and forth to identify your weight and free leg. Then take two moves, forward or backward, ending with a whoosh to the side, and repeat.
1-2-Whoosh = Forward-Forward-Whoosh or Backward-Backward-Whoosh. Feel your partnership powerfully moving in these directions, with your flow of energy always progressing into your next move.
You can start progressives on either leg. Play with forward progressives, starting with either your left or right leg, and then play with backward progressives, starting with either leg. Use a complete box in the 1-2-Whoosh timing to transition from forwards to backwards, and from backwards to forwards.
Your kickstand leg is imperative to maintain, otherwise, you can confuse which foot to move next, and/or lose your balance. Another reminder to articulate your kickstand leg.
Progressives are fabulous for building partnership control and realizing the importance of communicating movement.
