This week Chelsie and I are dancing the Latin Jive. Its really a fun dance and it fits my personality. However, it really takes a toll on your body. We have only had a few days to practice this dance. Unlike the Waltz having its light and easy rise and fall, the jive is danced into the floor. At least at my level of dancing. Kicks, quick turns, telemarks, dips and speed make up a really nicely choreographed number that Chelsie has come up with. I'm just hoping I can do it justice.
Each time we run the routine its like sprinting for about a minute and a half. We are both out of breath each time. My knees and feet hurt. Chelsie has been complaining about her right arm. Both of us are very sore and need rest. Actually all of the 11 couples are tired and its only the beginning.
I had my first Thai massage yesterday. Wow.... It was a little strange but very relaxing. I'm laying on my face and I can feel this little 4'11" Thai lady climbing all over me bending my body in all these strange stretches. Totally recommend it! It was a saving grace. I don't think I could have danced today with out it.
This morning we rehearsed in the dance studio for 45 minutes and then went to the soundstage where Dancing With The Stars is taped Live. We go through our routine a couple of times for lighting and camera positioning. Its also good practice because the floor in the soundstage feels a little different.
A quick spray tan and off to relax and think about tomorrows show.
I keep telling myself relax and have fun. I sure could use a good nights sleep. Its a little nerve racking as there is going to be an elimination on Tuesday. With that said.... Everyone remember to vote.
