Taught with Jeannie Lin again for the first time since our last trip to Europe. It is amazing. I can’t believe how it’s possible to know how good a dance partner can be, intellectually, and yet how easy it is to forget just HOW good they are until you are in the same place with them. This isn’t limited to her dancing. Jeannie and I have a working relationship that we’ve been polishing since our first experience back in 2013 at Blue Moon Blues, in Tucson, Arizona.
Now we’re back in Arizona for the first time since our first time. We’re older, more experienced and it’s amazing how much our progress as a partnership shows from our first time together. Rough edges are worn, dance philosophies are understood and class just felt smooth.
Nathan and Stephanie have been great local hosts, with around 8 couples for a small event only advertised two months in advance. The attitude of the students has been fantastic and the late night taqueria has really nice Carne Asada fries.
In all, it’s been a fantastic weekend and I’m thankful for the opportunities our friends give us to share the dancing we love with their home scenes. I hope everyone reading this is having a great time and that you can feel a measure of the joy I feel right now.
Thank you all.
