30th September 2010, Thurs. 10:30am - Advance Freestyle (TGCC)

A late start to class today, my fault, but we got going as soon as I set up. Started off by warming up with our Latin Lover routine. Still fine tuning this one so we're going slow. Wish we had 6 more feet dept in the studio :D We then went on to start our rumba section using The Masquerade by The Carpenters. As expected, its taking everyone some time to 'get' the hip/hold on '1' but also as expected, this group is working hard at it and is not likely to give up anytime soon. We then tried connecting the dots between all 3 of the songs and it turned out fairly good. We continue with Masquerade next week.

2 x forward rumba walks (Jo & Colleen) - 2,3,4,1,2,3,4,1
1 x back basic (LF) - 2,3,4,1
