I want to dance

Again, last night, cha cha. THis time the teachers did not formalize the teaching, instead just went to one or the other of us and show us stuff, then come back and see how we were doing. I spent time working on turns, a particular turn, that needs to go quickly. I never got it up to speed. There are so many kinds of turns and I don't always get the clues right. I have the crossovers and the butterfly just fine. Some of the men had trouble with these. I don't know why. I tend to analyse as well as I am able, noting the moves as they relate to the beats, the direction, anything else, trying to memorize it in my head. The longer time is spent memorizing with my feet. There are so many variations that it sometimes seems impossible to get these steps inside me, but I know it will happen if I keep going, keep practicing. It is getting tempting to go to a club to see how I do. I can imagine getting confused because that happens in the class. Most men are not great leaders from what I have seen, and that makes a lot of difference to me. I am not yet so good at reading the signals.
