LETS GET PHYSICAL
January 30, 2018
OF all the weeks to start work on the famous Strictly lifts, this was not the best one!
I’d been feeling under the weather and had been super busy in the salon when we stared to think about lifts and the more show off moves that really get the big audience response!
There are rules about how many show stopper moves you can pull and lifts must not be above the waist! PHEW! Now I’ve never been able to manage a cartwheel on the floor on my own let alone try one pushing off my partner’s thigh……but I cracked it. Eight attempts in and I actually got it and Chris my partner was thrilled.
Now would be a good point to stress how patient Chris is and his encouragement, particularly as I wasn’t feeling my best, went a long way in helping me make great progress.
I also managed to nail a few new quickstep moves that I’m busy rehearsing before my next lesson. Feeling quite content until I realise I haven’t even stared to work on the Samba moves! Still as the saying goes – manjana, manjana and right now I’m in quickstep heaven!
