    OMG, that was helpful!!! Please more videos like that! It’s so frustrating that we constantly left to figure out things on our own for no reason and it’s not easy especially for new instructors. Tutorials like this are amazing! Thank you so much!

    What a great video! I’m chiming in with everyone else in the hopes that there can be more of this format of tutorial. Showing an exercise or series and on a variety of bodies is an amazing learning opportunity.

    This is such a great idea. I do which we could have seen more of the bodies and how the cuing and corrections at the feet and the knees affected the rest of the body and the movement.

    Thank you MeJo and thank you Alisa, it’s so good to see different bodies on the footwork I feel it just watching it!

  13. It took me years to cultivate an ‘eye’ for footwork as no-one could really explain to me what to look for, what it meant and how to fix or even why to fix- and I’m still learning with each new body. This video would have answered all those initial burning questions! Thank you soooo much for sharing. It was great to see footwork through your eyes.

    And yes, Alisa’s correct – more like this would be fantabulous and much appreciated:)

    Excellent. Exactly what I nave been waiting to see up close and at different levels. More of these videos please.

    This was so much fun to teach! Everyones footwork is a little different, and it should be. Unfortunately, at times it may be a little hard to see what I see because the viewer is seeing the body through one angle of the camera, but I hope you all get something from this! Once everyone was moving, notice how much harder they had to work when I corrected the details.
    Thanks guys for doing some footwork for me!

      When I was getting ready to put this class up, I ended up watching the whole thing again — it was that fascinating (and I was there for the filming!). Thanks for this super informative video MeJo, I think you will be getting lots of requests for more like this one :).
