To propose this purpose is not to provoke meaningless disputes or accusations, but to really discuss and understand some of the theories written in the textbooks, and how to correctly interpret and impart this information to learners.
We all know that the revised version of the ISTD Latin Techniques Book is history. As long as it costs about twice as much, you can buy five books of five Latin dance courses to replace it. In addition, the supplementary IDTA Latin Techniques Book is aThis is a good book.
When I analyze these books, I don’t know who is right?
It is clear that two different ideas exist.
Let’s talk about Samba Bounce.
What does the samba bounce refer to?
Samba originated from Brazil and the carnival dance. It has the characteristics of knee compression and straightening. The bouncing occurs because the pelvis is contracted or the body is depressed. It is called “bouncing action”. It is not really jumping up and down.
How does bouncing come about?
Press the knee with 1/2 beat to straighten the knee with the other 1/2 beat.We divided a beat into two parts–1, 1 for the first half beat, & for the second half beat, the question is: do you want to bend your knees at 1 and straighten your knees at the same time?
\或者是其它的，对我而言较符合逻辑的是\踩1时膝盖弯曲接着在&这个阶段才把膝盖拉直。 Compare the contents of the two books, IDTA and ISTD, verbatim.
IDTA (Laird): If the bounce and rhythm and foot movement speed are combined, the rhythm will form “& 1 & a2 & 1 & a2”.
The straightening of the knee is done at & with the next 1/4 beat.
In other words, we straighten our knees during & shoot so we will definitely do knee compression on beat 1.
ISTD: (New ISTDSamba Handbook): Normal bounce is a samba trait. Briefly, the first 1/2 beat is slightly straightened, and the second 1/2 beat is slightly bent, that is, when the number is 1.Straighten and then do compression on & beat.
After reading the above, the quoted information is likely to cause readers’ confusion, for a professional coach.They all know what’s going on, so they don’t seem to bother with what’s written in the books, and therefore won’t be bothered by the content of these books. Many people say “Leave the book aside!
“This seems difficult to me. I’m sorry here, I just hope everyone can clarify what is confusing?
Are we using two different technologies, or am I confused? The two have the same meaning. Who can tell?
Brief explanation: We all understand that samba bounce does not refer to bopping up or down. It is a samba bounce created by samba dance. It is caused by the contraction of the pelvis and the contraction of the knees.The bounce formed by the force, please study the basis of Semba: what is the contraction and withdrawal of the pelvic dance, all its beat methods are performed with “1a2”.
Walter Laird’s所着的书对于森巴的弹跳有精确清楚的描述，它的图解对深入了解的更有很大帮助，即使在美国Reverse Basic的基本步比较普遍，我们还是应该忠于书本上所叙述的The specification uses the “1a2” calculation method for Natural Basic Movement.
My explanation is this.
Starting with parallel feet, the knee is slightly bent (compressed), the center of gravity is on the left foot, loosen the left heel and then pressurize it on the sole of the left foot to start straightening the knee. The beat is “&” (this & music belongs to the previous barThe second shot), when the knee is straightened, the right foot forwards and the center of gravity is on the right foot. At this time, the heel is lowered, and the left foot is on the right foot (the center of gravity is not required at this time).
Both knees are compressed in the first shot. Then & shot (this & shot belongs to the second half of the first shot) puts the focus on the soles of the feet at “a” (“a” is the last 1 / of the “&”(2 shots) It can also be said that “a” is a quarter of a full shot.
Relax your knees at this point and complete the first shot. Then change the center of gravity to the heel of your right foot and compress the knee.Raise the left heel (without center of gravity), count 2 (second beat), then press the right foot, relax the right heel, and straighten the knee.2) And bounce repeatedly when the left foot is backed up, so the number of beats is “&.
1 & a2 & 1 & a2 &.
“. There must be room at the beginning of the first quarter, because this” & “music belongs to the second beat of the previous quarter.
