    hi moon.

    the ballroom bootcamp is about 3 ordinary people, men or women, who have never been trained in ballroom or latin dance. they have 4-5 weeks to learn a ballroom/latin dance. the last week of training they get teamed up with a professional or experienced ballroom dancer. they compete for the bootcamp trophy in front of real ballroom judges and a whole lot of people. its cool.

    yea i know what you mean about the showy/gaudy celebrity performances on dancing with the stars. they do that to get the fan portion of votes.

    this season is the first time i watched it. apollo won. he was my favorite. very classy, plus he's gorgeous. i also liked ian but he appeared to be dead inside. no emotion at all, though technically proficient. he really was working on it, but he got voted off before he could take the plunge with his dancing. and of course laila ali, but imo she was too much of a bad-ass. she just knew she was going to win, but she didnt...

    anyway, take care.

    my goals are very simple.

    i keep drilling the isolations vs the compound moves. i want to make sure that once i am done with getting the basic downs that i will have done it with the greatest range of motion.

    i also drill hip lifts/drops to isolate and strengthen those muscle groups.

    i have been drilling the 3/4 shimmy concurrently so that in a year it will be a mindless replication by the body.

    i need to work on 2count head slides/chest lifts/drops/shoulder lifts/drops. i got real good at head slides and sadly stopped working them and already are back to poo.

    Moon:Have a great time performing. I'm sure you'll be wonderful.

    My goals are to make it to water aerobics tonight and BD class tomorrow. I haven't been able to practice at home lately and my hubby is off next week so I doubt I'll get alot done then either.

    Miss Shimmy:An ATS workshop sounds like great fun for you.

    Charity:I only watched an episode or two of Dancing w/Stars so I don't have an opinion on the winner but I thought that Laila ALi had a rockin' bod. It's nice to see a woman who's curvy with muscle at the same time.

    Have a beautiful weekend. Peace, love, health and happiness to all.
