The aespa Black Mamba knee drop choreo,albeit a bit altered, is part of my Bharatanatyam (Indian classical dance) warm-up and I feel like flexing this to the world

mods Idk what flair to put this under

For all the impatient kids tl;dr: I can do the Black Mamba choreo without my knees hurting because it's part of my South indian classical dance warm-up/stretch routine.

  • Full Story -

So finally after a five month partial lockdown and excruciating Google meet online dance classes , my country allowed 10 people in one room again. So my dance teacher split us up in 3 groups of 8 people and called my batch all to the studio again yesterday and boy, it felt so good seeing her in person again. In traditional indian arts, the teacher-student bonding(Guru-shishya parampara)is of a special meaning, which means my dance teacher is like a mother to me. She is actually a software engineer by profession, but teaches classical dance as a passion. My "school" is one run by her, woth ages spanning 3- 17 (majority are the little brats from ages 5-7) but I was in the batch with the elder kids (12+), So she can actually teach us something instead of constantly trying to shush the kids.

I had caught the tram I usually missed to the studio and arrived there 10 minutes beforehand, so after I initial greetings and oh-you-really-look-tired-sleep-and-eat-well we both warmed up together while waiting for the others to come.

When we Bharatanatyam students/dancers warm up our legs and do stretches, we do this one muscle strengthening exercise where you clasp your hands together stretched out in front of you to keep balance, keep your feet wide apart, and slowly, to the count of four, bend your right leg the way down until the left leg is completely stretched to the side. Then, without support of your hands, and only with the strength of your thigh muscles (Which we need for our base posture Aramandi), you come up again. And the same goes on the other leg (to my disdain, my left leg is weak).

This is repeated at least 20-30 times, and every time, the speed with which you go down/come up increases, until you're at one fourth of the original speed you started with. It's important to start slow, otherwise you might end up in a speed your legs, thighs and knees would like to sacrifice you to Satan for. Beginner mistake out of impatience, I've been there, done that.

If you did the exercise properly, then you're warmed up enough to stay and dance in [this posture ](https://qph.fs.quoracdn.net/main-qimg-c6b62a7e7f047f5a
