My trip to California was short but very exciting! Lots of great dancing from my students! Main topic of the weekend - understanding the center of the turn from both man and lady's prospective. That principle is one of the most important. It helps not only get around each other successfully but also stabilize yourself, feel more grounded, be clearer on shapes. People seemed to respond greay and I saw improvement
