Tonight was the most productive I've been at the studio since I've returned from Chi-town. And it felt so good. It hurt, but in a good way [grinning]. My hamstrings are already sore, and I have a feeling my calves and my entire back will be screaming at me tomorrow. Good. No pain no gain.
I think yesterday's little inspiration explosion set the wheels in motion... I'm starting to have a game plan for my swing choreography, my Student Concert piece is taking shape in my mind (I'm still looking for music, but I think I might have it) and I was incredibly focused at the studio tonight. That is kind of a big deal, as it really is harder for me to be focused and disciplined when working on my own. The more structure I have, in the form of a teacher running a class, the less chance for me to get distracted. Which isn't hard. My attention span sucks.
I discovered the modern technique that feels second nature in my body at the intensive this summer, so I'm really focusing on honing that technique. This is Horton technique. I love it. It stretches and strengthens my body in a capacity I've never experienced before. It hurts like hell. But in a good way [bigger grin]. I just keep going back for more [Cheshire grin].
Someday when I have more energy to write a more detailed post, I'll tell you more about it.
But for now, bed is in my immediate future...
