The first four week session is complete. It was not as successful as we had hoped. Because we have danced a lot of East Coast Swing (my favorite) we went ahead a signed up for the class after it had started which meant we missed the first lesson. The next week we had a substitute teacher and he was terrible. We were so confused (and we can dance East Coast Swing!!). We have had Foxtrot but it is not a favorite and we haven't dance it in years. We did not do well. The third week we had the regular teacher and what a difference! She was awesome and everyone caught on much more quickly. Tonight was fast review and a new step added in for each dance. Everyone was struggling by the end of the class. DSH and I decided we will take the beginning class over again to improve on the basics we learned and to imprint it in our muscle memory! I keep suggesting we practice at home but to no avail.
Tomorrow my dental office is going to San Francisco for the Dental Convention. I HATE driving to SF and looking for parking. Happily, we were able to talk our boss into driving us all up to the class. He goes to SF all the time so he knows what he is doing. We are all going up to get continuing education to keep our licenses current. Lunch out and then back to work. I am only seeing two patients tomorrow. Kind of silly to hurry home for two patients, if you ask me (but, the boss didn't).
Side note: didn't Obama's speech stink? I thought so. He is so full of hot air and full of himself.
