    I don’t know what a rock star spin is would someone add a link for me. I get so confused as people call everything such different names.

    Thanks

    one of my teachers, kyra (who was in uspdf east and is in the amateur comp) is the one who showed me this move and mentioned it being in a video somewhere, but i’ve never seen it. all i can tell you is that it’s really, really hard. she actually said this was her nemesis move- she was trying to get it for a few months before it clicked for her.

    when you go into rockstar, you are in it only for a second. you literally throw your right leg up in the air, and as it gets high enough, you transition your bottom hand from the push-pull for rockstar into the grip for butterfly, while you unhook your left foot, throw your hips up in the air and hook your right leg on the pole above your top hand. it’s a lot going on in a second and you’re pushing up into the butterfly (because your right leg has to hook at the knee on teh pole ABOVE your top hand).

    does that make sense? it’s tough to explain.

    when i’m in class with her again i’ll see if i can get her to do it again and video it. it’s a really pretty move that looks deceptively smooth and easy! i would think a good starting point for it would be working on the spinning cradle right into a butterfly while still spinning.

    How’d I know that when I saw the topic thread in the daily message thing that you would be the one who started the thread? https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_lol.gif Just let me know when you’re ready to attempt it (after enough people explain how to do it) and I’ll spot ya. Just promise not to kick me in the head, anywhere else is fine, but head kicks suck.

    I’m confused as to how you would get into the butterfly from that spin, my hands would be in the wrong position. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_scratch.gif

    veena, you have to switch your hands right when you go into the spin so that you can butterfly up.

    So this is how I picture it:

    Briefly in rockstar spin,
    drop bottom hand underneath,
    move outside hooked leg to opposite side of pole, (can this step be left out?)
    apprentice up into butterfly

    Does that sound right? I’m having trouble apprenticing while spinning, any suggestions?

    I was in class with amyxshi when Kyra taught this combination. I didn’t do the moves together, lol, but it’s something to work towards. I could barely get the rockstar. I’m flexible but I really need to work on positioning my top leg.

    Perhaps it may be easier if you do the rockstar and hold it. Once you stop spinning, then maneuver into the butterfly until you can slowly do the combo without stopping.

    Thanks so much, Amy!

    Wow. This looks really impressive! Similar technique as Hero to Butterfly now that I can see it. Would have to have very strong and flexible shoulders (at least, I think so)! Just doing a static Hero to Butterfly nearly put my shoulder out (strong side Hero, weak side butterfly – am now training my weak side Hero to match the strong butterfly) and spinning it would be so much more difficult. My rockstar is strong on the correct side for me to go into strong side butterfly, so I might give this a slow, careful shot when I’m not hungover and exhausted? https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_razz.gif

    Be careful, ladies!
