A MOVEMENT MOMENT #9: Line of the Leg

| March 4, 2010 | 1 Comment

LENT – what are you giving up this year? Hello Everyone! Welcome to March.  Apparently there’s some basketball something or other [shout out to Syracuse, woo!] coming up this month, but really?  Let’s be honest… it’s a scant 3 ½ weeks to Champs for most of us, and I have started to see WGI prelims […]

A MOVEMENT MOMENT #8: Put on Your Audience Eyes

| February 17, 2010 | 1 Comment

Zip.  Zero.  Nada.  Negative.  Nuthin. That’s how much colorguard exposure the Movement Chick has had in the past three weekends. You see, Mother Nature has apparently gotten ahold of my planner and wreaked havoc on my show schedule, and I have consequently been iced/snowed/airlined out of South Carolina, Ohio and Northern Virginia. Of course I […]

Hey everyone!  So, ummm, here’s the thing ~ the Monday movement posting deal was NOT so much working for the movement chick over here.  Something about dragging my sorry self [albeit with great shoes] off a plane, driving through the tundra and hugging on my chickadees, all in a home without internet service has precluded […]

Hello Everyone, As we continue to dip our toes in; put our waders on, or what the heck, jump right into the deep end of the 2010 competitive season, it occurs to me postural control is as much a part of a movement program as is our performers ability to perform a tour jete. [for […]

MOVEMENT MONDAY #5: Movement Under Equipment

TWENTY QUESTIONS…OKAY, ONE. Ahem… Movement Monday this week became, well… Movement Friday… not quite the same cachet, hmmm?  My apologies to everyone.  I had all KINDS of clever excuses, but seeing as I made them all up, they weren’t really valid.  [I wasn’t sure anyone would believe I was captured by aliens anyway] However. Back […]

Third time’s the charm, right?  I am back to whisper sweet nothings at you with regard to your movement programs.  Warms the very soul, doesn’t it?  [I DID mention the not getting out much thing, right?  Oh, good. ]  This week’s topic […]

MOVEMENT MONDAYS #2: Strength Training

| December 14, 2009 | 2 Comments

Well, hi! They let me come back, can you even stand it?  I am just tickled.  See, one column, well; I’m not certain that’s really a column, now is it?  Two, however. Now, that shows a trend, that shows continuity… that shows that perhaps I need to get out more, do you think?   A-hem. […]

More Movement Meanderings…

Welcome to the end of the winterguard season!  Is it just me, or do we as pageantry people march to our own drum, so to speak, [I could not resist] disregarding the seasons as described on the calendar, and rather chart our years as either: marching band season; guard season; drum corps season; parade season […]
