Weekly update

We haven't had a weekly update in a couple of weeks now, so I think it's about time. First off, Tim actually read this blog for the first time -- ever? Well no, but I think the first time since we returned from adult nationals a year ago. He described it as "quite comical" which I think is a good thing.

Next, we are making progress on choreography. That doesn't mean we can DO the choreography, but that we know what it is SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE, for about the first minute of our program. There is a big huge major difference between the two. The good news though is that we can do the first part of it and the rest is do-able; we are able to try to do it, which we do, over and over. It improves in some small way each time.

We had a lesson today on the big ice and worked on Silver Samba with a bit of Viennese Waltz too. Our coach made corrections and improvements which caused us to say things like "OMG, this is so much easier when we do it this way" and "wow, why didn't we think of doing this before?" Every time we do them they get better so that's a big plus. I guess that's why I'm willing to get up at 4:30 in the morning for this.
