this dance is so challenging. i had watched it so many times, and i had no idea how difficult it would be to get it in my body. in my mind, i am someone who can dance and looks good...hey, even sexy doing it. but the mirrors and my stiff, awkward body beg to differ. so the challenge lies within. how do i get my body to do what my mind thinks i can do?
P R A C T I C E!!!!!
i will get this.
today i practiced and got a bit of it down. just til the part after we dip and then do the run with the foot drag at count 6. i have it up until there, with the right foot at the calf on 6. if anyone is in the class, you'll know what i am talking about. if you watch the video, it is right where she is singing "I'm up on him..." and yes, it is very close to the beginning. i know. and yes, i am so so proud. really.
(and thanks to dina...i think i will get the rest that we learned at our first class. i called her tonight and she walked me through the last measures that i completely did not get in class. thanks, dina!!!)
actually , here is a link to the video. we should have this available so you can get a look at what we are up against. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4T6WWn2_dUA
and like my husband said today..."beyonce spends hours and hours a day learning this. give yourself a break." i can be a bit hard on myself in life.
I will keep practicing.
i am a beginner.
i can enjoy where i am, a beginner.
opening my mind and body to a whole new adventure.
it really is a good place to be.
think about when love is new....
when you are in the beginning of a relationship...
after so many years together, we long for that feeling.
couldn't i see this new beginning in the same light?
