Hi IvyAB! Glad to have you here.
Thanks! I used to have an account here--LauraB, but I go by Ivy nowadays, and haven't been on here for a few years, so I figured I'd switch it up. ;-D
It's nice to see you again.
A little jive practice today...
How are my practices going? Just shoot me now..... sigh.
men are still from mars and women are still from venus....
Unfocused yesterday, need to do better today....just a tad bit weary of the discipline this week. sigh....
Today's practice was two hours of breaking down Rumba, after we've (mostly) finished our new choreography. It looks so different to the old dance. Sooooooooo much to work on. We're feeling inspired though. Three weeks of solo practice for us both whilst my partner's gone home. Time to break out skype at the studio?
I'm choreographing a solo for myself for a rumba show, a lil' something for myself before DP comes on stage. It's not been going well...
american or intl??
You'll get it! Some days are just slower than others. Start a "what do you think of my choreography?" thread... youtube link away
first practice since returning from Oregon ......reviewed smooth open waltz and first wall of gold standard waltz, also first two walls of open smooth FT, also looked at some trouble spots in open smooth vw, and reviewed some new gold QS choreo while realizing that I have also forgotten some of the silver pattern....worked hip action in rumba drill and opening of gold jive...tomorrow is another day
O_O When you practice, you practice Fasc!
The girl's got skillz.
It's a song that I REALLY love, and it gets the emotions flowing, so I can rumba more naturally. I don't know why I'm stuck.
And I've toyed with that idea for a very long time. I guess I'm just terrified of it.
And, my solo is supposed to last from the time the vocals start until she sings "Bibanke..."...about 12 measures.
intl gold cha, trouble spots in gold intl ru...intl gold FT, open smooth tango, intl gold tango
Better practices the last couple of days. The dancing felt good, working on technical details of new routines and then trying to get in and stay in the "just dance" mode! Not going to badly at all.
jive, paso, samba.....bit more gold QS, and gold intl waltz
Totally pooped....barely got through practice on Sunday. Day off today.
Solo practice on Sunday was better then partnered. Feel like I'm finally getting the timing and incorporating all the technique in the different areas of the body in satisfactory amounts in basic rumba walks. Geez....that took forever (and I'm sure there will be more to come - but hey, the basic work looks pretty good now).
