This dance is known as the “Lucky Stitch”. It is a great dance to start with, and can only be improved with the help of one who knows how to put in time. I have tried it and am now practicing it, and I will post here some tips to get you started on your next turn.
How to Do Lucky Stitch
I had a little practice in the past and will share the basic steps for doing it in a few weeks. In this video tutorial I will show you the actual steps taken during a dance.
Before we begin any dance it is a great idea to familiarize yourself with the steps that are involved here as well as the movement itself. It is very important to have a set of proper steps and a good understanding of what to do when and where, as many mistakes are likely due to not having any kind of base to refer to. As of now, no one will blame you for having one or two wrong moves, but you MUST have one or two for good luck.
Here’s How to Do Lucky Stitch
Step 1. Start with a basic “Lucky Stitch”. The Lucky Stitch is your first turn by the “whip”. It’s basically your first move and is performed straight down from the previous step.
Step 2. Get your leg straight and then start moving. Your first move should start with your heel in the air and then move down from there. Take time to make sure that your hand doesn’t go out as you move down, or if your heel ends up on your shoulder or something it can mess up the rest of your dance.
Step 3. After that is complete, you will want to start working on the “Lucky Stitch”. Simply do the leg-up and turn moves in short order.
Once you are comfortable with all the first two steps, you will need to start focusing on the third step. It starts in much the same way as Step 3, but also requires additional turns such as step 4 and 5 to get all the way to the end. Once you get it down, you can move on to the rest of the steps and let the rest of the dance come naturally.
Step 4. This is the turning part where you really want to get the foot up and “shake your body” to make the motion more fluid. You do this by making the hand move along the body by making contact with the shoulder and then the opposite shoulder.
