1 Arm Arabesque

 

 

 

 

 

Flier – From hands wait for the base’s dip.  Ride up until right before you hit the top of the base’s extension. Right before the top, you want to initiate the turn by turning your head by placing your chin to your shoulder, turning to the side, squeeze your abs, place your weight in inside of the right foot, and keep your feet together.  Count to 2 in your head and pull your left leg up.  It needs to be parallel to the ground.  Your chest needs to be up, and you need to hit a T motion with your arms At this point your right foot and upper body is facing to the side while your upper body is facing forward.

TIP:  DO not open up your hip, due to the fact you are not flexible enough.   That is not proper.

TIP: If you are doing an arabesque right, then you should feel a pinch in your back

 

Base From hands, you will need to adjust your hand a little different than a regular arabesque.  To find the right position you want to slide your right hand up to the middle of the right foot in a hamburger grip (underneath NOT to the side).  Squeeze her foot and on count, extend the stunt in a triangular like fashion.  Right before you hit the top, let go of flier's left foot and turn the flier’s right foot to the side while placing it in the middle above your nose.  Your left hand needs to be place on your left hip. (Always squeeze flier's feet while stunting).  Do not relax your shoulders and always squeeze. 

TIP: IF flier is going forward – to adjust make sure you push through your right thumb. A flier will have a tendency to fall forward. 

TIP: make sure the flier stands as slightly on the balls of her feet.  She should not be standing on her heels or her toes.
