The ribbon is used as an extension of your body in praise and worship.
If your movements are large you are less likely to tangle the ribbon.
You can make large circles in front or overhead
You can flick the ribbon over your head and back
You can wave the ribbon from side to side
You can do a spiralling movement, turning the ribbon in small quick circles
You can do a snaking movement, moving the baton up and down quickly
