In case you didn’t notice, the title is dripping with sarcasm. It accurately reflects the fact that I am royally frustrated and slightly pissed off. No, I don’t want this blog to ever become a place for venting, but I hope the kind reader will forgive me for expressing my frustration at this time. Everyone always has days where they just feel “off”, perhaps even a bit detached from themselves. Today’s lesson was one of those days, and I really felt it.
Team Match is coming up on the 23rd of this month so the main focus was getting an idea of the moves my partner and I are going use during our ninety-second stay on the floor. I’ll be doing Cha-cha, Rumba, Salsa, Waltz, and Tango. Today, we mainly worked on Rumba and Salsa. I have a love-hate relationship with the Rumba, so I’m used to the ups and downs. However, I just felt totally out of sync with my dancing today. It felt like I was just moving to the music rather than actually dancing. The most frustrating part of the lesson came when I found that I was out of it with my Salsa, too. Normally, Salsa is a very strong dance for me. Well, not today. All throughout the lesson I was thinking, “What the h*** is wrong with me?! Where’s that A-game you normally bring?” I guess my A-game decided to take a little holiday this lesson. Grrr! I can only hope that next week, when we work on Smooth, things will be back to normal.
Flummoxed and Frustrated,
