Well, its the end of another week. I have been practicing at home (in my kitchen) all my on2 choreography and footwork. I have also been doing excercises in the bathroom mirror and in the car doing shimmies. So, how far have I gotten? Well, to tell you the truth, there has been improvements..
To be honest, I've been so busy with the website and podcast – I didn't have time this week to go out that much, but I did go through all my regular classes and training. I have been able to start thinking On2 more easily – to the point where I'm starting for forget what On1 is (hmm, isn't that interesting). I think it actually helped not going to the club and 'having to dance on1'. Tonight most likely will go out because I can't take it anymore – so we'll see how I've been improving. I have been told by some ladies (may I add beautiful ladies..) on my dance team that I have been improving – so that REALLY made me feel better. David Stein and Steve Meyer are actually talking to me now (more often), so I also think its a good sign.
So what is up for the next week? I ended up buying a full length mirror from Target (I think it was $5.99 or so). I've started working on doing my basic step and adding the body motions in the correct time – which may I add – its very very hard. I actually would like to purchase a much bigger mirror, but I don't know where to go find it (IKEA?). Anyway, for those following at home – this is my schedule for next week:
|Morning||Work on Rib-cage (isolation), 15 each side.|
|Driving to Work
||Work on Shimmies on steering wheel, really stretching my chest.|
|At work..||Listen to salsa while I'm sitting down, and only tap on2 with my right, and on6 with my left foot.
(Yes, Sol De La Noche, by Salsa Celtica)
||Practice side-steps with shoulder movements (isolation while walking) and rolling of the foot for 3 songs (slow)|
|9:30pm||Practice front-and-back steps with shoulder movements (isolation while walking)
(really slow, while trying to pinch my shoulder muscle)
So, I'm planning on maybe after I get these excercises down pat, I can record them (if they end up working at the end of Week 4) and share them with you.
