DW and I are having to do a re-think on our lesson plan, since it looks like our instructor is going to be down for a while with her back injury. :cry: Next week we're going to take a lesson with the senior male instructor, which will probably focus on silver smooth technique. We may alternate weeks between him and another instructor. The studio just hired a new experienced female teacher, and I'm thinking about taking a couple of solo lessons with her to see how we interact; if it works out, I can work on leading and on getting my silver rumba and bolero (which I haven't worked on in a while) back up to speed. Also, I want to learn some new stuff in swing (ECS and WCS); I'm getting tired of everything I know! However, the other thing that is happening at the studio is that they are trying to establish a program of bringing in top-level dancers (including Larinda, yay!) to do coaching and workshops for a session each month, and we might just save our resources for those for the next few months.
