    Excellent practice today - things are starting to click on three very important fronts: upper body control, staying over my own feet, and styling. Can't wait to implement at my next lessons...but wish my next lessons weren't still a couple of weeks away! Plenty of time to reinforce, though, which in this case is a good thing.

    Went to first "group" practice/lesson last night at new studio on new floating floor! After a 4 month lay-off - regardless of corrections - it was GREAT!

    practice today and yesterday was good. had a new set of corrections I wanted to work on, and also wanted to start putting some "finishing" into the new routines....

    practice today;

    - paso: more resistance, more consistent shaping
    - upper body coordination and use
    - more repetitions of a correction in usage of the foot in the weight transfer

    Worked on jive, trying to incorporate new technique information into the dance so that it will become natural. Haven't tried it to jive speed/music yet on my own though.

    worked on staying within my own limits and twisting and speed in cha-cha. in samba, dropping my weight. in rumba, better control with the back leg....

    long practice today.....good stuff though, slow corrections in coordination of the upper body in rumba and cha-cha, continued work in paso, and worked a bit on "just dancing"...

    another good practice.... rumba felt great, cha-cha not too bad. much better use of my back and better speed. feet gave out way too soon today. *sadness*

    Managed to destroy my lower back at practice today. Need to evaluate what I'm doing wrong.

    Worked on all 5 latin dances, continuing to focus on faster changes of direction, and solid weight distribution.
