Tonight was my first lesson in Chicago's “intermediate” Lindy hop course. It was challenging. Oh, and the air conditioning wasn't on, so we were sweating the whole time.
Usually when the instructor introduces a new step, he'll run through it with us a few times without music, once or twice with a slow song, and then a few times with a quicker number. Tonight I think I heard the slow song a total of one time. It was difficult to do steps I had just learned to music so quick I could barely keep up. Oh well, I guess I should just keep up or go back down to the beginner's class.
I definitely got a workout tonight. I guess that's good though because I skipped my bike ride today and I needed to get some cardiovascular exercise.
