How cool is this?
The Greencastle Indiana High School Swimming team uses skipping to help them sense and establish natural energy patterns related to each beat of a variety of movements. The ground establishes an energy beat, and then they try to “figure out” how that beat gets through the body and ultimately out through the finger tips. From that foundation they take the movements into the water and try to feel the same natural beats established with the kick and the hand stroke of swimming.
