Dailymotion: Evgenia Kanaeva’s RG Tutorial-Rope
MASTER OF SPORTS – ROPE
edited and translated by Alyona
Hello everyone! My name is Zhenya Kanaeva. I am doing rhythmic gymnastics. Today I will show you some elements with a rope.
Evgenia Kanaeva was born in Omsk in 1990 in the family of sportsmen. She has been doing gymnastics since the age of five. At present she is a National Champion, a two-time European Champion and a winner of several World Cups in rhythmic gymnastics.
There are five different apparatus in rhythmic gymnastics – rope, hoop, ball, clubs and ribbon. Gymnasts wear leotards at their performances which are made specially for them. Leotard and apparatus must be of the same color or they must match each other. The hoop and clubs are usually wrapped around. Ribbon is sometimes painted. Rope is chosen according to its color.
This element with a rope should be performed with straight hands. End of the rope should be placed between your forefinger and your thumb. At the same time one arm moves upwards and the other one backwards. The one that moves backwards should leave the end of the rope. The hand of the arm moving upwards should help the end of the rope reach the other hand.
Hold the rope so that its ends are placed between your forefingers and thumbs.
1. Both hands simultaneously move the rope upwards.
2. Right hands moves straight upwards and left one up and backwards.
3. Left hand leaves the end of the rope free. With a right hand direct the end of the rope into the hand.
4. After the end of the rope finishes its circle in the air, catch it with your left hand.
The movement which I have showed you is called “Echappe”. You can combine it with different elements, for example with balances. One foot is on the points, whereas the other one is being raised for 90 degrees. Bent your knee a little.
“Echappe” can be performed in combination with other elements, such as balance. For this you need to put your right foot on points and raise your left leg so that the thigh stays parallel to the floor. You need to bent your left knee and point your toes. Then make “Echappe”.
Learn to work with a rope because it is very interesting and nice. Good luck to everyone!
