3s & Step Forward
For today's lesson I told Lynne I wanted to break down the problem areas of the waltz-8 and work on them... so we did.
- 3s - we spent the bulk of our time on these, working first on the small half-circle by the hockey boxes and then on the bigger circle. Too much of the time my 3s are slow in tempo ; and my check is lacking. Made some small progress on getting me to lean into the edge more going into the turn, and I had some that were decent. It's just a lot harder to really get that edge in my patch blades I think. Also trying to keep the free leg close all the time and not let it pop out on me after the turn... ugh.
- step forward -- we spent the last few minutes on these. Some improvement.
