Hiasan - Turning
Embellishments should be beautiful adornments to the dance. They should add to the experience of the dance and not get in the way of the aim, which is to make one body moving out of the two bodies.

- There are tons of embellishments you can do in a pivot.
- As in, when you're doing front ochos, or back ochos, or media vuelta.
- And in this video, we're going to show a whole bunch of different ones.
- You can slow it down. you can watch it again and again to get them.
- And then, in the next video, we're going to take a couple of the ones that everybody seems to like,
- That we think are really beautiful, and we're going to explain them in a lot more detail.
- So, there are tons of them. That's front ochos. Here's one that I like a lot for back ochos.
- So, you wouldn't really do it a ton of times over and over. But I did it so you could see it on both sides.
- N: And then, you had some for media vuelta.
D: Oh, for media vuelta.
- N: I'm leading now. Gurr!
D: Yeah, she's leading.
- Or, again.
- Oh, you can't see. New angle.
- D: Or, again.
N: Same angle?
D: Yeah, thank you.
- So, pick any of those you like, and watch for a million times. And then, copy them.
- With embellishments, fundamentally, I think, what is good to remember, is number one - it's not about the embellishments.
- D: So, if you make the embellishment the important thing,
N: Oh, that's so right. This is good.
- Then you miss out on all the other cool things, that are so important.
- On the connection, or on the beauty of the dance, or on the wholeness of your body... Or anything that's terribly important.
- So, I want to speak about that too. It's cool... Women love embellishments. And it's great to do them.
- But you can only do them in such a way that you're not slowing the man down,
- And you're not taking yourself away from him, when you do them.
