Thinking about transition as being in the middle of something instead of ending something shouldn't be bad, wrong, a trick or short change the student. everything that happens can be talked about demonstrated and clarified, but it can be done in a way that has the transition not being an end to something, but a middle to something.
What's the big deal? It's a different way of looking at the movements in our turns, not reinventing or denying turns or nessasary movements.
Who hasn't said the finish of one turn is the start of the next. They overlap and are totaly interconnected when we make more than one. So why can't we take that simple concept and break down and define our turns in a different way? Later, RicB.
