The Royal Palm Dancesport Winter Frolic is getting closer and we are getting ready! Had a great lesson on Sunday drilling waltz technique with an emphasis on rotation. I learned that the root word of “waltz” is a word that means “revolve,” so dancers should never forget that a good-looking waltz relies on rotation. It doesn’t have to be dizzying–just enough motion and changes of direction to keep the momentum consistent. We still need to work on this emphasis but it’s already adding a lot of dynamism and energy to our dancing.
Last weekend was USA Dance Greater Macon’s monthly social, which was lots of fun as usual. Paula East did a great job with the music after our usual DJ, Chester Gibbs, had to drop out at the last minute due to an emergency. Thanks, Paula!
Our next dance (our first of 2016!) is coming right up on the 22nd. Mark your calendars and we hope to see you there. Stay tuned to this website for our February group class schedule and don’t forget we are available for private lessons too.
