Very nice..Excellent.Very talented for someone so young..If possible I would produce the rings unlinked.This gives more mystery to the linking.Slow down on your single card with confetti productions.This a very pretty thing to watch.I let the confetti hit the stage before the next production.I would not let cane drop on the stage put it some where.It can lead to an easy steal of a load....Cordially, Howard

Yes...the cane was a bit strange...I had to keep up with the fast song...but I will change the song as soon as possible because I would like to personalize the routine more then it is now and I will include a softer single production with the fingers open (personal version) ...thanks a lot for the help

Congratulations for winning second place.

A couple of pointers I would like to share with you.

* You are walking around (unconsciously) too much. If you take a look at the clip again, you would notice that you are moving forward, backward, and sideways too much and without any reason too.

* I believe when the cane appear from the silk streamer, you should be holding the two ends of the cane rather than holding the silk and let the cane dangle around.

* At one point you produced a fan of jumbo cards and then went on with normal size cards again. I beieve that is a bit of anti-climax there.


Over all, a very nice show and keep up the good work. Your performance showed the hard work you put into it. Congratulations again.

I should have hold the both ends but it slipt out of my hand....The walking around is strange , I am trying to reduce it , in general , but at the end I walked because I was waiting the song I was ahead of it because I went out of cards, but in generaly I walk around a lot with no reason (must take it down).

What would you do after producing the jumbo cards??I thinked at that when created the routine but had no ideas , but maybe you can help me here.

thanks for good points

Terrific job. What you are doing takes a lot of skill. It is awesome that you have achieved such a difficult routine. Congrats on 2nd place. I agree with James about the excess motion with the legs. I also would add that it seemed to go on a bit long. Part of it was that there wasn't a clear climax. I would suggest modifying your music so you can end the routine with the production of the jumbo fans. By that point you have already done confetti, cards, and linking rings. This would give it a clear climax. Great job - You're a rising star!

The jumbo cards would be a better finale than just the confetti. Instead of turning your back to the audience so you can get hold of the jumbo cards, you can surprise the audience with the throw streamers and from there produce the jumbo card fans.

Nice job.

I have a few tips for you.

I'd produce the rings separately, and maybe you might want to consider a box or hat to let some of the cards fall into when doing the productions, not all but some like the split fans.

And I would consider adding a streamer at the end.

Just some ideas, I hope that helps!
