Had a lesson w/ my first teacher and his partner. Very very cool. Worked on moving by working the distance between center and hip. Totally changes walking, and molinete's especially. Very nice. (Finally had someone really be able to explain the whole "center" concept. FINALLY!!!) Also worked on volcadas. Was very apprehensive. But, the added bonus of having a girl there to help teach is that she was able to point out a little something which completely changes the feel of the entire thing, and makes them easy and not-scary. HALLELUJAH!!!! Slightly flex the knee of the supporting leg, to the point of pulling the heel off the floor. Also, tuck the pelvis under. OMG. Completely different feel. So freakin' easy. Happy to discover that my free leg is getting significantly free-er. Boleos and other fun leg thingies not so much of an issue anymore. Well, at least not with my left leg. 2 hour volcada workshop today. OMG my abs are SORE. Ow, ow, ow. And my lower back, as the result of a know-it-all leader--this is going to hurt for a few days, I think.
