Tour notes (May 15-22)

Monday, May 19
CCSF movie night - Hula Girls. A fun time was had by the ~40 students, some dressed in Hula style, who came together to watch the flick and nosh on popcorn and candy. This was the first time Chelsea held a movie night, and I think it was a hit. Maybe next semester we could have another these, with a tango movie as the featured flick (like the Tango Lesson or Tango [with Carlos Rivarola]).

Tuesday, May 20
Ed & Nora Dinzelbacher lesson & practica @ Allegro. Nora & Ed taught a sequence: 8CB to 4, with Leader sacada to displace Follower's left leg at 5, Follower's right foot does small floor beat back to outside left of left foot, followed by 1/2 counterclockwise molinete, to small colgada when Follower is entirely on her right leg (so left leg goes side out, then forward back in). The hour-long practica afterwards was very helpful to etch the steps/movements in our bodies.
