Ok, so this is my very FIRST time trying to copy down choreography from a video so im sorry if it don't make sense or it's crappy! lol. I doo suggest you try n grab a copy of Live in MSG just so, ya know wut the heck im talkin bout! lol. Here goes



No Strings Attached Concert Version.

Choreography



Pinocchio Bit



“I got no strings to hold me down to make me fret or make me frown, I hate strings but now I’m free there are no strings on me.”



Puppet poses until “I hate strings….” Slowly bring arms and head up in front.



“Hi Ho the merry-o, it’s the only place to go.”



Jagged arm and leg movements, like being pulled on strings.

After “..Place to go.” There’s a twiddly bit, just twiddle your hands.(exaggerate, make it noticeable or there’s no point really)



“I want the world to know, there are no strings on me.”



Jagged arms and legs, bend over on “me.



Loosing Strings Bit



Stand up

Turn right

Stick right arm out

Use left hand to pretend to loosen off wrist strings.

Look up, as if to watch the string fly up.

Look back (straight in front, still to the right)

Look to front.

Turn body to front (hands by side) ------“Baby you’re not the only one”

Turn left

Stick left arm out

Use right hand to pretend to loosen off wrist strings.

Look up, as is to watch string fly up

Look back (straight in front, still to left)

As you turn to the front, flop/collapse body to the right. (to do this just bend both knees, with the right a little more bent, and lean to the right- make it as puppety as poss’) Spring back to face front.



“You don’t have to be afraid to fall in love”



This is the bit where *NSYNC fly further towards the audience, we obv’ can’t do that, unless you got that sorta equip’



Slowly bend, bringing arms up like wings as if to fly, and just slowly move about. I suggest (sticking with the whole puppet thang!) to look at hands and feet sorta like “Woah….im not a puppet no more!” lol, sounds stooped but affective!



Jump into place on the beat

Punch right arm on the left side of body, then the right side.

Punch left arm on the right side of the body, bending down with it.

Stand up straight.



Cross left hand to right shoulder

Then right hand to left shoulder

Left hand down but bent at elbow

Move left hand to head and right hand behind both arms bent as well as body.

(remember all done on the beats)



10 clicks as you walk into position by the edge of performance area.

Soon after 10th click all pose towards one direction for explosion/firework.



Another 10 clicks into position into middle of stage.

Point right arm back

Point right arm in front

Point left arm in front

Point left arm back ( on beats)



Really crazy fast, energy bit!



Slowly bend down

Jump bringing knees up

Hit knees with fists

Turn slightly to right

Brush left shoulder with right hand

Punch left arm down

Punch right arm out in front

And place left hand on right elbow crease.

Nod (up-down)

Jump twice back (high jumps but don’t travel too far back)

Put tops of hand on hips, move elbows back then forwards

Look right, look left.

Jump kicking right leg and both arms forwards but bring them back to body.

Step on left leg and spin to face the back.

Punch both arms out to left side but look right & flick hands

Turn left to face front

Bring arms up, clasp hands and body thrusts

Look down to right

Look up

(needs to be done with energy)



“I see the things he does to you”

Point right hand to head and roll down to left side.

Turn right

Grapevine left

Grapevine right with pointing fingers.



As if about to step left on left foot, shrug left shoulder then right then left

Look left

“All the pain that he put you through”

Bend body bang knees with fists

Roll right (slamming left hand against right arm as you punch right arm in front.)

Roll left ( same with opposite hands)



“And I see what’s really goin’ on, stayin’ out at night while you’re by the phone.”



Punch left

Punch right

Slide right twiddling fingers.

Tap right foot behind body then in front and body roll up.



1:Right arm across body

2:Left arm across body

3:Roll right arm up to top right (in diagonals)

4:Roll down to bottom left (in diagonals)

5:Brush hands down body, bring back to chest

6:Push hands away from body, bring back to chest

7:Punch right hand down and left hand straight out to left side, bring back to chest.

8:Punch right hand down and left hand to head.



Those were just the arm movements I suggest you try and grab a copy of *NSYNC Live In Madison Square Garden for that bit, so ya’ll know what I mean esp. for the feet, right on with the feet.



Small grapevines left to right in till you reach number 5 with the hand movements.

Turn to face left on “5” stepping back on your left foot.

When you do the punches you do little “Dopey Shuffles” to the left, not moving much.



(dopey shuffles= ya ok I made it up but ya know. Ya know how Dopey, yes from Snow White, kinda has to shuffle…to keep up with the other dwarves in the movie?? Well do that only give it more of a jump than a shuffle- I know it’s got a real word but Im tired and I cant think of it right now)



Step into place bringing knees high.



“Take it from me, It’s a lesson to be learned even the good guys get burned.”



Slide left- left arm to left side

Very good. When I get the time I am gonna sit down with the DVD and those instruction's and give them a shot. It's close to five minutes, so I'll give you props for that. And since No Strings Attached is my favorite song, it is kind of nice to be able to know it.
