Sellen Posted August 18, 2010 Report Share Posted August 18, 2010 So I may have encountered mazurka back years ago but it felt brand new when the teacher threw it in at the end of class. The instruction mainly was step small attitude hop brush hop; I fudged through it but was trying to sort out the actual sequence and timing today but I can't seem to find a breakdown in the books I have. From what I gather, there's the step forward, temps leve with knee bent, brush/cloche through, temps leve - where I'm getting really tripped up is the timing of each part. Is the second temps leve after the cloche is finished and leg is devant and straight already or does it happen while it's brushing through? Is the accent on the brush or the hop or is it the same? The more I think about it, the more confused I get. Maybe I'm missing an additional hop? And for my clarification, mazurka accent is on the second count, one TWO three? I watched some videos but it didn't help much other than encouraging some wild mazurka-ing around the apartment trying to sort it out with little success. Quote Link to comment
