Once you start to think of what's happening in the air as being an extension of what's happening on the floor and that this, too, is dancing, things start to get much cooler.

(From the website): Kremerata Baltica, a chamber orchestra, was created in 1997 by renowned violinist Gidon Kremer, who serves as the orchestra's artistic director and solo violinist. The high artistic quality of the ensemble is the result of the exceptional talent of the individual musicians and Kremer's innovative approach to repertoire.

So, in the previous chapter, we went over some fundamentals.
00:08
And, we gave an example of one lift. Sort of the easy lift, if you can say there's a lift that's easy.
00:15
Here, though, I want to be... make you aware, that there's a lot of freedom.
00:19
So, what happens is people freeze. You pick someone up, and all of a sudden, the girl can't move.
00:23
Or guys, they're like this, "OK, I've lifted her, now what?". Which is not so good.
00:29
So, the first point I want to make, is that, ladies, when you're in the air, you can do a lot of cool stuff.
00:35
So, for example, just pick her up, and... move your legs in cool ways.
00:42
Move your backs, breathe. Thank you, that's beautiful.
00:45
Right? So you can do a lot of things. You don't have to be a frozen statue.
00:49
And, likewise, for the guys, if I ask you to dance by yourself, you can be, like, "Oh, look at me, I'm so good! Yeah!"
00:56
And then, you pick someone up.
00:59
So, remember, for you too, that you have freedom. So, for example, if he picks her up, he can walk side to side. Give it a go.
01:05
He can walk around. He can go down. he can go up.
01:12
So, there's a lot of freedom of movement.
01:14
So, let's take that, and let's modify that, step we did in the previous chapter.
01:19
So, we're going to do the exact same thing, but we're going to say, "Well, you know what, she can move".
01:23
So, when she comes up, she'll have: up, slow, and it'll take time. And at the same time, he can move.
01:29
So, he's just going to do a triple step to the side.
01:38
Right, thank you.
01:39
And then, we'll say, "Well, you know what? That's not it". So, starting from here again,
01:44
Not only can he move, and she move, they can also...turn. He can also turn. So, we're going to have you do a slight turn.
01:51
Scoot forward, a little bit. There we go.
01:53
And give it a go. Same thing, turning to your left.
02:02
OK.
02:04
And, what's more, let's say, that... if you can do it to one side, you can do it to the other.
02:09
And so, we'll take this "simple" sit, and we'll make it a complicated one.
02:14
Just by adding a little movement, a turn. We'll do the other side. Here, do other side.
02:28
And then, you sit her down.
02:34
So, the point, is that...
02:41
When you think about lifts, people's instinct is to freeze, and to think that a lift is not dancing.
02:46
"A lift is a lift, and oh, I'm doing this physical effort", and they stop dancing. Which is the complete wrong way to think of it.
02:51
Your tricks are still dance. And they're still beautiful dance.
02:54
And you want to think, that they have the same texture, and the same freedom, that you have in all of your other movement.
02:59
And if you do this, then, all of a sudden, instead of having those cheap lifts, like those other folks, you'll have amazing lifts.
