    I've just started smooth and I really like it, and this is what I'm excited about in my dancing right now. I figure getting up at oh-god-thirty is incentive to really hunker down and move up the ranks, even if it is only to full bronze :)

    Wow, I'm flexible - REALLY flexible for a 33 year old. Didn't realise, but one of my teachers went through posture for a few 'bendy' moves today, which helped me achieve great lines with ease - really beautiful contrachecks, some great kicks in foxtrot, some amazing stuff in rumba.

    Of course, that's nothing without technique, but I'm really excited at what is possible.

    A really great new instructor, who keeps the criticism to my dancing, and not me personally. Previously I could never get past a certain degree of tension (always waiting for the axe to fall on my head). Now I can relax, and not only am I able to absorb more information, but my body suddenly works in ways it never would before. I am sooooo excited. :)

    I'll be dancing my Mary Poppins routine at Vol State tonight. This'll be my first time dancing a showdance at a competition.

    Thats so exciting! Be sure to post pictures when it gets here!!!!

    New standard shoes came today. Just switched from supadance to ray rose. Had to order them online because there is no store that sells them nearby and they fit-better than the supas! So pumped for my lesson tonight!

    Just had a lesson in a brand new pair of shoes! They feel like they'll definitely be an upgrade once I get used to them, but most of the lesson I just felt like I was working on not clomping places.
    Worked on some tango stuff, which I understood (and am excited for), and some waltz stuff, which I didn't understand (less excited for)....

    Welcome to DF Novemberecho!
    My excitment? dancing on a brand new floating floor - asked ballroom sisters and watched how it felt,,,,they chimed "no pain in ankle, knees or hips" we all have some sort of form of arthritis....Can't wait to get on that floor!!!! and dance again.

    Building stamina back up and learning new figures in Smooth for Open~! I could leap for joy (but can't) even with 4 more weeks of healing to be had. Paint me Happy.
