I seem to be a little perkier today and in slightly less pain.
I am cautiously optimistic that maybe things are slowing down and starting to take a turn for the better. Fingers crossed.
Had 2 good lessons today and yesterday. We are continuing to work on the solo and getting into the details and styling a bit more. We have about 15 seconds left to choreograph and we have gone from rumba to samba to paso, so I am eager to see what we end with. I can do almost the entire thing on my own, minus the pivots and even they aren’t too bad.
I even managed to practice on my own for about 40 minutes today, which is more than I have done in a week and felt great. I was able to work through the solo routines and get through the parts I needed to do on my own. Boss gave me a few more things to work on, and we worked out the timing a little more solid, so I hope to have the energy to practice tomorrow to keep things fresh.
I am really enjoying working on this solo. Boss has really given me some good challenges through it and it is really making me stretch my boundaries. He is using a different approach for this solo, but I couldn’t describe it really. I think it is because he is using the music to drive the choreography. It just really works.
I look forward to seeing how it will end.
Until then, I remain cautiously optimistic.
