It has just occurred to me that I used to write about my private lessons but that seems to have stopped. This will not do. Seeing as this blog is mostly about my personal journey through dance, I need to start blogging about my lessons again. Plus, it will be helpful for my retention, like taking notes.
Well, my lesson was on Wednesday at 3:00 pm, the usual time. Unfortunately, Tommy has been feeling under the weather, so he was not able to teach me yesterday. Instead, I had Olga. We worked on Cha-cha, specifically on the technical aspects of the rock-step and some arm-styling. I must say that while nothing beats dancing with a man, I really appreciate having a woman teach me as well. It helps me embrace my femininity, which I am just now learning how to do. That does not just apply to dancing either. I have also had a rather strong masculine side, and I used to hate the fact that I was a girl when I was really little. So, ballroom has been a huge help when it comes to being a woman. I mean, how could I not be a woman when I am surrounded by beautiful dancing and dresses? I never plan to be a fem fatale, but I do want to show the men what I have. I am definitely looking forward to my next girl’s lesson, whenever that may be.
