With IGC only 9 days away, we caught up reigning champion [PM] Ice Kream Teddy to gain insight on his mentality leading up to the tournament, his thoughts on the competition, and his place in gloving history.
Each day of TomorrowWorld got off to a rainy start, but by afternoon, the climate was cloudy with a high chance of light shows.
The roster, which included names like [3M] Jest from Minnesota, [ST] Torq from Florida and [EF] Vulcan from New York, bonded throughout the festival, and the trading of ideas and concepts between glovers and orbiters took their lights shows to another level.
Hello Gloving Universe!
This week we have a rather unique video making its way to your screens, a collaboration between 5 of the best and most well known girl glovers in the game! These girls are some of the heaviest hitters in the scene. Let’s watch this insanely firey video, “From The Shadows,” then get to know them all a little better.
After an unforgettable summer full of flow arts and festivals, orbiter Allazo has challenged the undisputed leader of the orbiting community, [ST] Torq, to a battle at TomorrowWorld. Both members are the only orbiters on this festival’s FaceMelt Crew, which includes glovers like [3M] Jest, [LLB] Starlight and [EF] Vulcan, but their battle has been highly anticipated since Allazo called Torq out on Starlight earlier this month.
What is the Concept?
While this isn’t a concept in the same way as tutting or finger rolls, picking the colors of your lights is just as important as anything. Lights give glovers an advantage over a lot of other styles of dancing because we have the ability to portray emotion through the colors we choose. They can be completely random color sets, or they can have special meaning behind them. Whether you’re rocking programmable sets or sticking with classic bulbs, your sets are always part of you.
This article, I’m going to be covering a few different ways people choose their colors as well as some basics tips and tricks. Remember, these aren’t rules to picking sets. They are just ideas and tips for you to use and expand with.
Hello Gloving Universe!
It’s time to get dark and sunny at the same time. This week’s breakdown features the 305 Queen of Steez, [NL] Swirlz. For those of you that have not yet seen this girl glove, she exudes confidence with every motion and her fluid whip-n-tunnel style compliments that attitude to a tee.
This show is a change of pace compared to the recent feature videos we have been putting out. This show is all heart and soul and you can really tell that she is really just letting it out. I could not think of a more tangible representation for what gloving has done for all of us. I’m sure you will relate once you hit play.
HELLO GLOVING UNIVERSE!
It is me, your friendly neighborhood Ice Kream Teddy. Today, I am going to give you a quick review of the most powerful EmazingLights glove set to date, the eLite Element.
The Element uses an accelerometer to detect the change of speed in a glover’s light show. Once it passes a certain speed threshold, both the color set and flash pattern change. Or, in simpler terms, if you go fast enough, the light changes modes for you.
When I first met these two Hawaiian glove gods [IM] Puppet and [IM] Mez, their use of “Web Theory” embodied their styles so naturally that I had to rename it for them. I, Jest, do hereby officially dub this the “Infinite Movement Theory.”
This theory is the outline for a very useful, but fairly advanced practice tool. It is to be used in the lab to take your learned moves and sequences, break them down to their bare bones and reconstruct new patterns and combos.
