Trusting the body to do what it's been trained to do, finding the wisdom contained therein, and discovering ways to let go....
Had a lovely smooth lesson yesterday, fixing little things with my feet that made a big difference overall! Also, decided that as much as I love love love competing, I can't afford to do what I wanted to do next year with routines and dresses and lessons and such. After another look at my budget, it's come down to getting the remaining of my open routines for rhythm and smooth choreo'd and learned and nothing but lessons all next year. And I am surprisingly okay with that. Will make my husband happy, too, as it will be well under budget then. And all of that makes me excited again!
Starting to return to Gold Standard, remembered some, forgot other parts....excited about learning technique again in a relaxed atmoshphere.
the possibilities on the horizon!
finally feeling like the dancing is approaching a level that's worth watching.....man that took forever....
I want to watch!
LOL!! Thanks DM!
No need to watch. Only to bask in your presence in hope that something will rub off, O Great Sensei latingal.
I don't know. I am probably the one needing to bask.
LOL...you guys surely know how to turn a gal's head. Thank you both for making my day!!
Transitioning into a new period of dancing for me. Dancing smooth for the first time in a very long time...and it feels like coming home. Am excited about all things dancing for the first time in a LONG time - cannot wait for more!!
breakthrough type lesson yesterday, love those! understanding the boundaries that constrain the movement in latin is helping both the picture in the dancing and the stability!
in the middle of a dance break...I had a dance with a teacher that was so revealing and so deep...I never thought it was possible to feel that way again. I'm so relieved I lived once again this experience!
Starting over, in a way, and I feel like a kid in a candy store - can't get enough! Technique, patterns, solo or together, doesn't matter. Drinking from a fire hose and loving every second of it.
love it when pieces seem to be falling in to place....when long hours and aching feet seem to finally pay off. to finally reach a point that the dancing feels solid, stable and performed with much more ease.
dancing with your partner instead of next to them is an amazing feeling!

Looking back over the last year and seeing how the journey has unfolded, how far I've come and the progress that has been made!
