    using my standing leg
    starting to find balance
    telling my pro I am ashamed to look at myself in the mirror
    telling my pro I am ashamed to look at him
    straigthening my back without any pain
    believing in my hubby's words that I will overcome all the difficulties and keep on dancing
    dreaming that I will dance for another year
    utterly enjoying dancing again!!!!!!!!!!!hooray!!!!!!!

    Rumba is getting better. Studying a certain man called Slavik is doing me some good...

    The feeling of controlled, smooth power I seem to have found lately!

    That still exists only in my imagination. Hopefully it will come to life soon...

    It's addictive!

    (And causes a whole set of sore muscle fun, 'cause you don't want to stop dancing. Like, as in, I'm at home right now, and my feet and legs hurt from the last couple of days, but I kinda want to head out to the studio now to practice anyway... because it's quite possibly the coolest thing I've ever felt!)

    Managing to stay on balance during a back-bendy standing spin that starts from a stationary position (most credit goes to my partner for this though).

    Getting out of it is a whole 'nother story, however.

    Finally getting to compete open Int. Latin but knee pain and shin splints from Jive kicks and flicks- OUCH!

    I learned that I need to move my leg first before transferring my body over the leg...but while I'm transferring my body over the leg, I need to get ready my other leg to move out. Too often, I just marvelled at moving my body over the leg...and then nothing and I topple over to the other side.

    Partnership connection skills are improving, getting a better feel of the speed and power that can be generated as a partnership and how to accomplish it!

    Connecting with others makes me connect with myself...difficult and painful but worth it...

    Taking a giant leap in to the unknown...things are changing in my dance environment, and either you continue to grow with it, or you die on the vine. Going to give it my best shot - it's time to be fearless and confident and see what it brings.

    I'm doing something a little similar...choreographing a paso-flavoured freestyle for myself and three other people who don't know jack about is well with me...practice has been going quite well considering their lack of experience...

    The connections with DP are getting better and more active... our frame is getting fuller... in short, I think we are improving! We'll see what happens at the next comp... practice, practice, practice... ;)

    Prechamp Standard! Just finished getting two out of our four new routines and there's so much more freedom than syllabus!

    Feeling the sarcasm coming on....

    Soooooo excited that pro has decided to "kill me" tomorrow. I think his exact words were that he was going to "run me in to the ground" (rounds). I'm looking forward to this about as much as I'd look forward to being kicked in the head....LOL!
