So, since is also a type of blog, every week for 4 weeks, I will be giving you my progress on how
everything is going - with my trials and tribulations. I will take the month of September to get this done, so that I could be ready for the San Diego Salsa-Mambo Congress.
For those who want to follow at home - I've came up with a schedule that fits my situation that will practice timing and body movements.
|Week 1 Schedule|
|8:30am (before breakfast)||Do body isolation excercises for my shoulders. 15 rotations each shoulder (while maintaining hands inplace). really stretching.|
|9:30am (driving to work)||Doing shimmies in the car. Holding the steering wheel with both hands (at 11 and 2 o clock), and make sure I'm only moving the rib-cage to create the effect. Do this while listening to salsa (and paying attention to the 2 beat)|
|12pm lunch||Do more shoulder isolations in front of the mirror at the workplace bathroom. Another 15 rotations on each shoulder.|
|7pm||If no salsa class tonight... listen to salsa on my iPod while I dance On2 by myself. Do this for at least 2-3 songs. Maybe do more while doing other chores. Will also practice side-step with shoulder coordination. (Putting shoulder isolations to practice with basic step).|
|Club Night||If dancing at a club, only dance on2. And if you dance, you must not do any complicated patterns. Stick to doing simple turns/crossbody leads/simple fundamental patterns - but make sure they are all done on the correct beat/number and on the on2 time.|
So, hopefully I will update this next Friday with a new schedule - but I will start this today (Aug 31st)! Let's see how it turns out.
