Ok, this will be a mess of an update!
I am so behind. Happy Holidays
Wednesday- Ballroom classes
Samba and East Coast (as a leader)
In samba we learned an extended box step, in east coast we learned a right side pass.

Friday- Swing Dance with a live band
Saturday- very brief review of Big Apple
Sunday- Ummmm I think there was a small practice of the big apple

We thought about going on to the next part, but after watching the video, we decided that might kill the brain cells. I have been so exhausted lately. I know that it’s time for a break. This Christmas break will be great for relaxation, and for dancing.
We are planning on going to Atomic Ballroom Thursday for their free west coast swing class. I am looking forward to that. Then I know we are going Friday for their swing dance, and then the new years party. All of those events are at Atomic.
