Handstand Dance

Do you want to learn how to handstand dance? This article and videos will show you how.

First we’ll start with a small section from Professor Orlick’s Walking and Jumping On Your Hands:

There are few things which go over better with the average audience than seeing someone dancing on his hands. Spectators invariably conclude that you must be terrific to be so good on your hands that you can not only stand, and walk, and run, but even dance on them. Yet dancing on your hands is not difficult, if you learn everything we have covered so far. In fact, you will already have done just about everything you will do when dancing.

The important thing now is to put it to music, or at least to a rhythmic beat. To start with, just turn on some dance music with a good strong beat to it, kick up into a handstand, and then try to move your hands in time with the beat.

Next, try taking little steps forwards, backwards, and sidewards, always keeping in time with the beat. Then, do some of the turns we covered above, but again do them in time with the music. By now you will actually be dancing on your hands, and even if you did little more than this it would still be enough to get a hand from any appreciative audience.

This video blends elements of dance with hand balancing and other acrobatics. You especially have to admire the flow from one move to the next.

    In this case it can be easily naoerwrd down to a only one of a few people 35# plates (2) were found in second position of 45# plates (IE: 2 x 45# plates above it). With a workout consisting of 135# RX (IE: 2 x 45#’s per person), an individual who did say 115# on the WOD would be a likely candidate for accidentally putting the plates in the wrong stack. No one is saying that it was done on purpose, but what we are saying is that anyone who did Thursday’s 6:15 workout at 115#’s could say well damn, maybe it was me, I’ll be more careful . And if 2 people did the workout at 115#’s, then the two people could say well hell, I guess it probably was one of us, why don’t we split the burpees . The issue I have isn’t about the burpee penalty, but the lack of awareness and responsibility for putting your shit away. What gets me worked up is that no one is willing to say hey, I’ll be more careful , instead we hear the burpee penalty sucks and is unfair . It does suck, it is a burpee penalty.
