We have a great thread on lessons (lessons, what are you working on) but none on practice. Other than that there is no theme - just to talk about what you worked on, where and anything special.... I'll start off..... Last night went to our weekly wednesday practice at a large studio that a couple rent for 2 hours each week and we all pay a small floor fee. Its a fantastic venue as the floor is perfect - full size for comps (except perhaps for missing a corner where the DJ podium is). Also, there are usually no more than 6 or 7 couples so you don't have to worry much about collisions. The other nice thing is that the organizers play each many tunes one after the other for each dance style and they have far more standard than latin (great for us). Thus, you can work on one dance, say waltz. for about 20 minutes before shifting to another. We have all been going for months now and are getting to know each other quite well. dancing - worked mostly on our recent lesson stuff - fallawayreverse-contracheck-weave in waltz, rhumba cross-running right turn in QS, and improving swing in FT.
