Leg Clocks – Floorwork Tutorial

by | Video Tutorials

In this tutorial, you’ll learn a fun floorwork flourish that you can add to any routine. We cover Leg Clocks, the regular version of the move, as well as a variant called Half Clocks.

With regular Leg Clocks, you will be switching which leg is behind the other, while you never switch legs with Half Clocks. One may suit your routine better than the other, so feel free to play!

Remember that your knees are always glued together, and don’t forget to point those toes, even in heels! Un-pointed toes are very obvious here and can break the spinning motion up harshly.

Let’s recap the steps to the video:

Leg Clocks:

  1. Lean back and hold yourself up with your forearms.
  2. Point your toes and bring your knees up.
  3. Push your legs straight up, making a 90-degree angle with the floor, ankles crossed.
  4. Your back ankle sweeps out, away from your body, and around to the other side. Your knees should stay glued together.
  5. As your first leg begins to sweep up, your second leg follows it around with the same sweeping motion.
  6. Your second leg joins the first at the top. Your legs are now switched.

Half Clocks

  1. Lean back and hold yourself up with your forearms.
  2. Point your toes and bring your knees up.
  3. Push your legs straight up, making a 90-degree angle with the floor, ankles crossed.
  4. Your back leg sweeps out, away from the body and then around, back in towards the body.
  5. As your leg begins swinging up, allow it to slow and come back up, tracing the movements all the way back to the starting position. Your legs will not switch here.
