Been carrying on the theme of "quit muscling through things in your muscle memory" and I've been really impressed with what I'm seeing in occasional glances at the mirror!!! I've realized I don't really need effort to have proper leg / foot / hip coordination in Rumba, so I can calm down with that and focus my energy on further hollowing out my core and using my back and arms in coordination with my walks. Very excited to keep this thread going. Samba's a similar story with whisks, the hips down are automatic minus a leg detail im adding for styling, so I just need energy on that and the rest can go into my core, back, and arms. Did get annoyed with myself running a solo round yesterday - the floor in the studio is super slick (still new ish, needs to break in more to be really good for dancing) and it was a brutal adjustment from a very sticky floor in Houston all weekend. There was some sweating under my breath as I struggled to keep balance in sections (but it was a good reminder that step size was getting a bit too big).
