Improvisation has many aspects. Here are some different aspects of improvisation to develop:
- Variations of movements, 48 sacadas, 32 ganchos…
- The shape we make on the floor: We can walk on a grid (front, back, and side) and in circles (double-giro, single-giro, and calesita).
- The method we use for projection, including barrida, gravity, change of direction, and vertical circles.
- Cycling power between movements. One of the most common is back voleo to front voleo. We can trade sacadas. A beautiful advanced example is front voleo-circular into follower’s back sacada.
- The dynamic: Shape and character of the step (rebound, deceleration into parada, acceleration with sacada, falling, diving, floating…).
- Taking on wardrobe and mood by taking on characters, mimicing animals, and acting in a personality (drunk, little girl, sailor…).
