Chinese New Years
« on: February 04, 2008, 09:56:03 PM »
This is a chinese new years performance at my local chinese school. just a short one, a sort of teaser for my class =P

one drop, trying to catch an infinite suicide...><

Any suggestions/tips on performance, execution, etc., i'd appreciate. also in terms of video capture, i just got a Canon HV20, cause im performing a piano concerto soon...computer won't take the HD though.

btw, im not sure where i got these tricks from, although i picked them up from random forum/youtube searching. if someone can credit them properly, i'd like to thank them.

edit// ahh juggling.tv has much higher quality.

Nice performance, the only thing I could suggest is using white carbons instead of your black ones if you can afford it, they look better.

Or failing that use a bit of white tape and make stripey sticks.

Get Aluminum Sticks (I suggest MB Xtremes), they're much better, and how is the HV20, I've been wanting one since last June.

On Topic - I liked it, short and sweet ;D Nice grinds!

Funky grinds, I think you should make a 2 minute routine just on random grinds with a bearing diab :P

I like carbon fibres over aluminums, any day >_>
Perhaps you ought to try out those Sundia carbons? I've heard they're more durable than the Henry's.

akat: haha dunno how to describe my 'style', if i even have one...but im finding the jazzy sort of beat suits me =]

nah: i should try that one day...i've been trying 2d grinds (like a 2ball thing with 2 diabs instead), to no avail. how would you buy sundia carbons though?

Ah, that's cool, reminds me of what Eric had done in Of Baguettes and Diabolos, when he did a 2D shower on his stick

Perhaps Nev supplies them on diabolomoves.com?
Or perhaps if you go to Taiwan during the summer or something (if you go to Taiwan, around the Taipei area) and go to the actual Sundia Shop, you could pick some up

very nice. That's better than any performance I've put on at my chinese school. I've got more students than I can handle at the moment and don't get paid more if I have more students so I don't really prepare anything for my end of year performance/teaser. I like how all ur kiddos are poking their heads out the side of the stage and watching you in total awe, that's always great.

Regarding your tricks, most of them are new to me and I really don't know what to say about it but, "wow, more 1d tricks for me to learn and teach." Also I find a quick little section of 2d really gets the kids going crazy resulting in, "mommy, I wanna learn that!!"
