Ok, I know that I said I would dance every day, and I feel that I have totally been slacking. Slack no more she said!
This week has started the goal for good. I will do some kind of dancing every day. Here is an update of what has happened since I last wrote! WE FINISHED THE BIG APPLE! I am hoping to record it today or tomorrow. I also have the videos of the moves we learned and danced in the airport. They are going up in this post!
Friday night was some good dancing. I had a couple good dances upon walking in the door. And…. you never believe… they were not with James! Sometimes I get some flack for only dancing with James 😉 We did get a chance to practice the moves that we learned in California which was great. Something different for me Friday was that even when I was making mistakes, I wasn’t getting frustrated, but just continuing on. Its starting to feel more comfortable. I was also trying out different footwork, and that was working!
Here are some videos
first up is the alternate footwork for dancing fast!
And the fancy elbow move-
And the elbow spins-
Ladies Alternate footwork-
and switching places variation-
Tonight We are going to ballroom class. It is beginning Viennese Waltz and Intermediate West Coast Swing. I hope to get some movies of what we learn. Also, to tape the entire Big Apple. Both James and I have done the thing from start to finish, and that was definitely an accomplishment!
