Slap-Stomping

July 28th, 2013

Stomping as loud as possible isn't usually the goal at contra dances, but occasionally you want to make a lot of noise briefly. How can you do this without hurting your knees? Normally to stomp you bring your heel down hard, which means your knee absorbs a lot of the shock. If instead you let your foot pivot around your heel and slap the floor with the sole you can make a similar noise with much less shock through your knees:

Don't overuse it!
