The only thing I've found, as far as dancing goes, is a short avi clip at http://www.livingart.com/raving/video/video5/video5.htm Here is a site that helps with your glowstick technique http://www.homeofpoi.com/teach.htm Hope it helps. If anyone else can find more visual examples please email me. Gracious, -Manikese

Heres what i do for sticking

Figure8 using my arms and wrists. Tracing of my stomach, arms horizontally and around, armpits around, down leg trace etc. Helicopter spinning circles using wrists. throws, well trying.

Also that other dude send me your moves please I always like to hear other peoples style

All you really want to do is make up your own moves, flow to the music try closing ur eyes and flow. Try using uprocks and liquiding to spice up your dance. Also do some stalls in between to make it seem like the stick is flying use your eblows ankles thighs chest mouth hands anything that allows u to create a stalling effect>>>try >>>>>>>www.spraci.com<<<<<<<<<

basically, i never knew how to dance until i started raving. that was last year and now i feel wicked when im on the dancefloor. holding ur glowsticks,place ur wrists together and cup your hands. its hard to describe but your hand looks like a kind of flower. then rotate ur wrists round 360 degrees but always keeping ur wrists together, imagine theyre glued. whilst doin this remeber to jump or bend ur knees or something and move your arms around in a figure 8. sounds complicated but when ive got talkin 2 people at raves they always ask me to show them how it is done, trust- it looks wicked!

just flow to the music without glowsticks try to snap your hard quick on the deep bass and flow out the rest of the 3/4 note it looks awesome

You can't look stupid at a rave. its not how you dance, I have seen people just sit there a wave there hands, just do what you think it right, it will come to you, and it takes alot of practice, I have been going for 4 years and I still have alot to learn, good luck!

-----just go with the music.

Raving isn't hard once you get the hang of it. From the 8, learn how to go around your head, and try to learn some footwork. Footwork definetly enhances your club performance. Hope this helps. And remember, never stop, just go with the music.
