long latin practice, drills & fundamentals for jive, samba and cha. also worked the "track" dances (WCS and salsa) for footwork, turning and balance when anchoring. no heels for this practice.

today will definately be about spinning and doing it quickly and employing a variety of neglected technical aspects that are required in order to do that...also making my hip twist in cha more independent at speed...also going to look at some issues in smooth as well involving both turns and PP

practice today....worked on problem areas in all dances. happy to say that rumba seems to be coming along. the other dances I think I can get through pretty well...it's just a matter now of doing lots of repetitions and hopefully getting more dancing in with pro to solidify the partnership parts of the routines.

worked problem spots in routines in slow motion to encourage body and mind to understand what is required by the movement. also worked on identifying and recognizing the different feels of being grounded in each dance.

just not enough time to get all the things I need to get in to body memory in. very tough to juggle getting newer corrections in with cycling back to old corrections to make sure they stayed in.....
 
Decided to take a new approach to practicing. Made a schedule of when we will practice what and just focus on that. So far its been going really well. THere are still a lot of things we need to work on with our coaches. For now its just making sure we have our routines down. Then coaches fix everything else.

practices....have too much to handle right now. trying to narrow my focus down, but it always gets a bit difficult when you've had months and months of technique to work on and trying to get it to show up on the comp floor.

Practice today reviewed technique in chacha basics. It still amazes me ( and I am probably repeating myself), that basics continue to get more and more dimension added to them, so I am forever and will forever be, polishing up the basics!

didn't I just post a couple of days ago, I already had too much to handle right now? LOL! More added yesterday; somebody must think I have super powers....

Will have to put the new stuff aside for now, getting through the new routines in somewhat decent shape takes precedence.
