Take 3 - Gancho Essence
There are 2 programs available that are free and very useful. VLC is a video viewer that lets you loop sections you choose so that you can look at them over and over and it also lets you slow down the video. Lots of help when studying something difficult or trying to grab a combination.
For downloading videos, there is Download Helper. If you want to study any of our videos more closely, using these 2 free programs will help. Here are instructions for each:
- Google for VLC
- Download from 1st link
- Make sure that if you look at the view item on the toolbar, "advanced controls" is checked
- Using a nice browser, there are often plugins to download videos
- Example - for Firefox: http://www.downloadhelper.net/ (or google video download "my browser" for your browser of chioce, and then use that to download whatever video you wish to watch)
- Right click on the file
- Open in VLC
- Click the 3rd button on the top row (like an upsidedown U) ... first click is start of loop, second click is end of loop and it starts looping. 3rd click to exit loop
- If desired, you can also click "playback" on the tool bar, then speed, then slower

- In the gancho, there are a lot of things
that you can emphasize.
- I’m going to talk about two.
- One is that same bang at that top, that accent.
- And we’re going to do it at different speeds
and you’ll see that we maintain that, regardless.
- And then, it’s nice, you know, that we have a slower song...
- ..which is maybe more challenging
but also more fun.
- And then, also, we’re going to talk about
the way the gancho...
- ..can be about the relationship between
the two bodies, which I think is very cool.
- So, from a relational perspective,
- ..she goes back with her thigh,
hits in the knee, releases.
- And there really is that sense that the thighs
really wrap around each other...
- ..but the knees are close.
- So, it’s almost as if, with your legs, you’re hooking...
- .. the same way you might hook arms.
- And so, her hips face away
to enable that.
- But, in the upper body, we can be here,
which I think is a wonderful thing.
- Talking about the accent at the top,
- Here, let me be the girl.
May I have a leg?
- And actually I’m going to rotate the leg.
- There we go.
Ah, very good.
- So, with her, I can even slowly go, pow,
or a different angle.
- So you see, even in slow motion
our gancho has that tip at the top.
- We don’t go…pow, where it sort of just blends together
into one meaningless mush.
- We go: pow, and you see that tip,
even if it’s slow.
- And if it’s fast, it’s the same,...
or faster yet.
- Slow the video down,
play it slow motion, if you can.
- Download it, use VLC, then do the loop.
I’ll put it in the comments how to do it.
- So you can do slow motion,
download the video…
- ..and you can see it’s still fast
and then faster at the top.
- But, keep that same accent.
- Showing again.
- Here, you can see the relationship in the thighs.
- And also the relationship in the heads.
