[Editor's note: The following is Ann Hutchinson Guest's response to the minutes of the April 7, 2008 Open Theory Meeting. Ex. 1, Ex. 5, Ex. 7, Ex. 8, and Ex. 9 are examples from the minutes.]
Timing for Supports Ex. 1, I would be happier if a bar line had been added.
Remaining over the center of weight: In AH 1d) the left leg remains under the body, the traveling is shown outside the staff and the landing is 'in place' as far as the relationship of the new support to the body is concerned. It is not unusual to show traveling this way, but for this special kind of movement, it is an appropriate way.
Resultant Touches. Ex. 8 is correct. Ex. 9 is not. The touch comes into effect at the end of the transference of weight, not at the start. Normally the foot would release from the floor at this point, the hook states that it does not and what kind of resultant touch takes place, in this case the toe.
