    Debmc...
    Purchased the Ray Rose Earthquake. Coming in a M+ size is perfect for my feet!
    This week will do a back to back. 1.5 hours rhythm followed by 1.5 hours smooth.
    Counting on my new shoes to get me through rhythm and feet still not hurt for smooth. Last time I did this my feet really protested after about 2.5!

    So did you take the lesson Purr?
    When I get to feeling that way I do the same as fasc and walk away for a few weeks, then get renewed...

    Very mixed bag this week.

    First lesson with DH was an absolute disaster, to the point that he decided to quit dancing. Thankfully he changed his mind after a good night's sleep. Our second lesson later in the week was good. Not amazing, but good.

    My individual lessons were fantastic. New technique led to a quantum leap all through my dancing, and my choreography for the showcase in Feb is really fun!

    Lessons yesterday, paso. Haven't done paso in ages so catching up with pros latest information is a good thing. The lesson gave me a different way to approach paso and from the comments of pro and some kindly on lookers, it adds the look of strength but increases the flexibility of the body.

    so much to say...first of all, this whole continuation of hip thing in rumba runs completely counter to this whole snappier head thing (just sayin')...and yes, I know that there will be no sympathy for that...then, regarding this whole jive thing; since I am over my foot and do the choreo reasonably well slowly, can't we just slow it down a tad?...and about relaxing during waltz; if you want that, you are going to have to be someone else(KWIM? do you have any idea how intimidating this is?)...last, but definately not least, as regards FT styling*** and this probably goes for rumba too*** if you really want me to get my sexy on, you are going to have to look the other way, because I don't want to see you laugh....how in heaven's name am I going to fix that?

    and


    I showed up at the studio for the lesson, but it never materialized. Pro was busy with studio administrative stuff that I ended up helping him with.

    today's lessons; every once in a while, the heaven's open up and you get a moment when you think your pro seems to be able to dance, and might actually be enjoying it and you think you can almost see what it feels like to be pretty good...not so much concerned with whether it was an illusion or not...it was lovely...and I am going to savor it
