Partner was in town this weekend so we got to run all the rhythm routines and finish up smooth and latin choreography. Just in time, too, comp next weekend Good thing we both practice alot by ourselves!
Okay, whole week has been about getting latest corrections into body memory, it's not hard, but I've hit the repetitious stage that can get a bit tedious. I keep trying to remind myself how much a difference it will make in my dancing....back at it again today.
Hurt my back a few days ago and still skipping a lot of practices, boo hoo A couple of times I did venture to the studio it was just too hard to commit to the steps properly. Decided foxtrot was the least offensive dance for aching back, but in the lessons we ended up picking up the waltz.
It did follow a weekend of OSB, but I don't think it was dancing, because I would feel it straight away. The night we returned from OSB we were puppy-sitting for my parents who went out of town and the pup is used to sleeping with them, so I spent that night half-sleeping in awkward position, terrified of crushing the tiny puppy who kept trying to cuddle up for warmth. Next morning - terrible back pain that just got worse through the day, so for that week I could not dance and could only walk with a hunch and for short periods. Can't be mad at the puppy though, he's a cutie
Hope you are feeling better and get back on the practice floor very soon fasc!
Continuing to work in corrections from last week and starting to make progress on figuring out how to create better speed and change of direction in my own body. The exploration phase is always fun, the repetition...well, not as much... LOL!
tried to practice...it was like dropping a penny in an empty room...I mean, it felt good to be moving round a bit and yet, neither consoling nor exciting nor dreadful....am just in a weird space with it all...glad the holidays are probably going to provide another couple weeks of break in the near future...and maybe the lessons tomorrow will help me to name the issue...will see
fasc, hope that the lessons and the holiday slow down help you find clarity in what you want in your dancing!
Practices with am partner going well. Solo practices a bit tedious right now, but sometimes it's just that way. Trying to stay focused on some of the positive signs in the dancing. And really looking forward to lessons today!
