So I had a really horrid day that started with a sinus headache-cum-migraine and landed with me at the doctor's being told how screwed up the inside of my sinuses currently looks. I almost skipped tango, but I'm REALLY glad a I didn't. The class was pretty small this week (8-9 couples) and I started to figure out the secada. I also got some good corrections:
Lyra (last week) - don't lose your axis, down for the pivot
Mike - when forward stepping with a lean go from whole torso (including hip), so that you don't lose all your balance and feel like your falling into it. Leaving the hip behind is what make you feel like you are following
Carol - don't throw away the collection
John - watch the chest, it will tell you where to step (esp. when the partner is throwing hella new stuff at you!)
Sean wasn't feeling up to the second class, so we may try and hit China Harbo
r on Thursday to practice. They have a intro lesson - anyone want to come if we decide to go?
