Mirage


Keep the bag in close to your body, and don't set too high! Instead of trying to go 'over' the bag with your foot, try going 'around' it with your knee. Your hip should lead the motion around the bag.(Playing time 77 secs.)

Illusion (reverse mirage)


Like legovers, this move is easier if you get a little jump off of the dexing foot as your set. Like mirage, you want to keep the bag in close against your body.(Playing time 68 secs.)

Butterfly


Get that knee up to make the dex! Be careful that you're catching and releasing the bag vertically, and not pushing it through the dex.(Playing time 86 secs.)

Osis


This is a SLOW move! Again, work on catching and releasing vertically - avoid scooping the bag around your body. It helps to really sink into the catch, bend that support leg.(Playing time 83 secs.)
