SLACK DROP ON A KNOT
This drop is easy and fun to do! The hardest part is just one quick inversion. Some tips:
1. For safety, keep that back leg BACK!
2.Trust yourself and let go of the silk COMPLETELY…or you may get a silk burn. Ouch!
FALLEN ANGEL IN A KNOT
This drop can be a bit nerve wracking until you try it a couple of times. Once you get the hang of it, it is so much fun! Some tips:
1. To slow down the drop, fold at your hips as if you want to touch your toes on your way down. To go faster, stay in an arched position.
2. ALWAYS keep your arms to the side to catch the fabric at your armpits. Tempting as it may be, NEVER try to catch the silks with your hands as you may risk missing and going all the way through the tight ends.
3. Be sure to keep your legs in a wide straddle as you rotate so they go outside the tight ends, or poles, of the silks. Legs together can mean stopping your rotation and sliding out! Yikes!
