We focused only on slip jigs during class tonight. We broke down various pieces of both steps focusing on technique: locking legs, pointing toes, crossing, turn out, and toe height. The dancers did a very nice job during drills focusing on their technique and fixing pieces. We saw some carry over from drills to running both steps to music, but especially by the second step dancers seemed to forget what we had worked on. We emphasized that the drill work is important to fix pieces, but should lead to improvement on those pieces when performing both steps together as that is when it counts.
