As noted in one of my earlier questions, I'm trying to get back into Capoeira. I'm trying to practice for 20 minutes or so each day, just going through the movements on my own in an empty room (the classes in town, unfortunately, still have not worked with my current schedule), but I'm running into an unexpected area of difficulty, the most basic move of the ginga. I feel unstable during the part where I draw my leg back. I think that part of my problem is distribution of weight between my legs (I know that the weight is supposed to go some to the back leg, but that the front knee needs to remain bent. However, I feel like I'm just lurching backwards rather than shifting the weight). And, well, it leaves me disinclined to keep doing the motion because it just feels clumsy and ridiculous.
I've tried looking up a few videos on YouTube, but they all seem to be of the "these are the gross movements you're doing... do them with a partner to the music" persuasion. Is there anywhere with better tips for getting it right than "just keep doing it and you'll figure it out"?
I'm currently at work, but I'll try to post some video tonight so that you can see what my current movement is like and hopefully coach me towards what I can do better.
