Practices have been short but awesome the past two days (~ 1/2 hour each day). Felt like I made real gains on upping the speed of my cha cha feet/legs and hitting the split weight position for each walk / check rather than going all the way over yesterday. Today I made some serious progress disentangling bounce vs. glide* figures in samba and hitting the straight leg before bending in cruzado walks while keeping my body movement very free. Also starting to get samba rolls and runs in terms of leg and body actions. All in all, a great two days of dance! *Not sure if glide is the right word or not, but I mean SQQ/QQS etc. timing figures.
