simply love the music used for this routine, full
of vigor and sparkle. It brings joy to the
audiences and even the judges.
with clubs at the start of the routine together
with the constantly drumming from the background
music, Petrova promises a lively routine. She
throws a club straight after, turning twice to
catch it in a back flexion. Some tiny touches with
clubs displayed by Petrova are really cute, even
the scale balance looks so easy instead.
she mills the clubs, shaking her butts, and
transferring clubs around. Take note of her
expressions here. They look so real and so happy!
Walking down to a side of the mat, she frolics
with the club closely to the music. There, she
performs a good toe balance.
the music modulates slightly, she releases a club,
turns twice to catch it and releases the second
club simultaneously as another throw. Kind of
she raises her leg to form a not-so-good toe
vertical balance, bouncing few times with the
rhythms of the music. She continues with a big
throw, turning an illusion turn to rush forward to
catch the club before repeating the same throw
immediately, but a small one this time. Here, she
performs a perfect triple arabesque pivot,
balancing finally on a front attitude position.
the main theme of the lively music appears,
Petrova shows her difficulty. Firstly, she
performs a large throw of a club, then a split
leap into a roll before catching it. A few pivots
and turning split leaps followed suit. She also
displays dexterity here as she rotates the club
over her right leg twice. It is fascinating and
next throw is certainly spectacular, and I mean
it. She releases both clubs, leaps a half turn
into a split leap and on landing, and rolls once
to catch her apparatus. Not to be outdone, she
concludes her routine by releasing a club the last
time, rolls twice to catch it.
some seem to deem this routine as a childish one,
I strong believe that it is a cleverly
choreographed, interesting and lively routine.
Perhaps the routine does not have the difficulty
nowadays and the leaps and elements are not as
sharp, it is worthy to watch it if you are looking
out for enjoyment. But, warning: this routine is
NOT for serious people.
