Skate Canada published a list of contemporary music for dances:  www.lbfsc.ca/sites/files/2013-14%20Dance%20Patterns%20contemporary%20playlist.pdf
 
Rolling in the Deep by Adele is good for the Canasta Tango.  I like Lady Antebellum, I Need you Now, for a Swing Dance but my coach decided it was good for the Riverside Rumba.  I only do recreational dancing so don’t have to dance to the ISU music but I do think these tunes are good for first learning to dance as they are exactly the correct tempo.  I know they can be annoying hearing them again and again but I remember someone was doing a free dance to a Monkeys song!!  Really got fed up with hearing that….. ;D
 
Do agree that Dancing on Ice contestants should do a pattern dance.  I groaned when the head-banger was mentioned last week!  Still, this is a “show” so I suppose this is why they do these moves. 
 
Going to watch the British Synchronised Championships this afternoon.  They are being live streamed on the BBC Sports website, today and tomorrow.

Spent most of my lesson tonight working on getting my drag lower - coach is lovely and started off holding my hands, then we moved on to me doing it solo.


I fell about 5 times. Got the drag lower though.


Then did program run through and some work on the Canasta Tango to finish off.

Tonight was fun! Worked on my 1 foot spin - it's coming along but I'm not hitting the position I need to in order to get momentum.


Then we had a look at my spirals. They're not technically high enough to be called spirals but I'm getting the body position now.


3 jumps. Love these, and now have an exercise for them - start backwards, step forwards and jump. Repeat round circle til you're too dizzy to carry on.


Then had a look at my outside 3 turns and outside edge on my weaker right side. Fun but blah! That's the side I've ignored for too long so now I'm paying for it.


My legs ache tonight! Haven't felt the ache for a while 😀
