    At our last lesson, I got a much higher percentage of the corrections than normal (compared to DH). And DH out of the blue suggested scheduling extra lessons and practice. Any minute now I'm going to have to stop contributing to the skill gap threads!

    After moving cross-country, had to start with a new studio/new teacher. We are going back to from 5 years ago. Even though I'm going waaay back to the beginning, I'm excited about this knowing that I'm on a path to become a better dancer. It's only been a short time w/new pro but I trust this instructor fully. Let the (re)learning commence!

    That things are feeling 1000x better. Frame feels better, bigger, and stable. Waltz and foxtrot feel like a real dance, rather than just steps. I think I'm finally getting foxtrot sway. :D

    excited that I am enjoying the dancing again and that it feel more like partner dance lately, and that it feels good...seems like 4 years has been a real milepost for the dancing to seem to have produced an understanding of how to dance with this pro...

    Started dancing again - without pain - Pro had noticed and stated several times in the last week "wow, your really moving, your hips are THERE" lol....funny how a much needed surgery also fixed my dancing ability. YES!
