Letter #13 Part 4 The Nutcracker Ball
Do you have the fingertip trick down pat? Good.
Can you squeeze your internal muscles to the music?
Just start by tightening and releasing to the notes.
Once you get a “constricting handle” for physically interpreting (view/hear/feel) the notes and how they correspond to physical movement, try actually creating muscle pumping choreography. This is a good second step as there are more levels above this intermediate one which I will discuss with you once you have this well understood.
If you do have the sheet music handy… Open the link below and watch the music.
First four bars:
Tighten and release using each pluck of the string instruments to either tighten or release.
This next part gets a little harder in bar five as staying with the music is going to be a challenge initially.
Pulse tighten to each note.
When you hear the clarinet travel down the scale, relax. Start the process again with the next set of bars.
Ok you should be at the 30 second mark at this point. There’s about 2:10 left to go… but why should I tell you how to choreograph your sex… put a little thought into your movement.
Obviously performing to just this one tune from Tchaikovsky is going to be far more taxing than Bust a Move by Young MC but I believe it is worth it.
