    Enjoying my dancing right now. I have the time to really take a look at some of my styling and areas that just are not looking up to snuff. It's satisfying to be able to figure out what is going wrong and how to fix it.

    I'm learning nine new comp routines. I wish I had 2 more months at least but instead, they will make their debut on the comp floor in a couple of weeks. I feel very nervous. Of course, the nervousness is secondary to the excitement of dancing silver smooth!!

    It seems I've tried almost every permutation of technique that might be possible (whether intended or unintended o_O ), so now when asked to add a bit of this, or take a bit of that out, I can actually do it pretty easily. It's exhilarating and mortifying at the same time. LOL!

    Lesson with Ed on Thursday. Worked on silver rhythm for the first time. Only got to rumba. He destroyed us, in a good way. Ouch.

    New routines time!

    Apparently they will be a significant upgrade in difficulty and complexity from my current ones, and we'll debut them in a little under 4 months... where I'll dance all 5 in competition for the first time.

    Wait, maybe I'm terrified, not excited...

    No news is good news, right? You haven't been on the "steps you hate" thread since April. :)

    Worked on two new figures that we can add to our repertoire... I had to convince DP one was a good idea though... but after a few tries she decided it was fun... :)

    fascination Site Moderator Staff Member would be nice if I could put that happy spin on it...but hate isn't the opposite of love always...sometimes it's apathy....I would actually like to feel strongly enough about some aspect of my dancing that I hate some aspect of it....right now, the only thing I feel strongly about is not continuing to do it if it continues to feel like this....and I am, even more alarmingly, okay with is what it is....we will see where it by day

    Personally I hope it doesn't come to you stopping your dancing fasc, for purely selfish reasons. You are a wonderful and amazing ambassador to the dance world, a good friend and just a great lady. The dance community would feel such a loss.

    you are a doll...I am pretty sure (amend that to very sure) the dance world would not bat an eyelash...and that is okay...when you work for hospice for a decade you learn that only a handful of people really care beyond a few weeks...I know who those people ego is okay with that :)...right now, I am just sort of observing it in a detached way and seeing where it is going to take those hotels that charge by the hour....I am sort of taking my dance journey that way...while that might have horrified me a long time ago, there are things about dance that I will always want in my life but there are just as many things about it that I don't want...that whole friendship part won't are a treasure, beyond being a spectacular dancer....I will save those details for a private venue
