I forget how much I like this conference, or at least doing fun step and hi/lo. I spent far more than I said I would but get carried away by all the cute clothes. It's so tiring but no matter how tired I was, once the class gets warmed up, w/ all the energy, you pick up. LOL, on Sat morning, my first class was indo-row at 6am w/ Jay Blahnik. At 6 pm, I finished a class and was talking to the instructor when he came in. I told him how much fun indo-row was and we chatted about it. As I walked away, I overheard him say, "I can't believe she's still here and doing classes!"
So, a quick synopsis on some of the classes...
Rob Glick hi/lo--so much fun. I have never found any hi/lo class w/ this much energy and fun choreography outside of DCAC. He repeats a lot but that makes it more fun. It made me decide that I HAVE to take some dance classes just to do choreographed stuff.
Rebecca Small step: I did three of hers since she's the only one doing step this year. Four step was very fun. It's great to see a whole room of people moving together. There was a prechoreographed step which was okay. Little choreography--she broke it down w/ one song and then we "performed" it to another. A lot of dance styles thrown in. And her advanced step class was great. What was nice to see was that she occassionally would make a mistake, like forget where we were or miss something. And it's not a big deal so why do I beat myself up for it???
Indo-row: Anyone who likes spinning should try to find this. This was fun and uses upper and lower body. I'm wondering if it would get old after a while and it would completely depend on the instructor on how energetic the class is. Check it out if you have the chance.
TRX: I want one! It's a canvas cable w/ handles and foot holders that you hang up from a beam (cable machine at the gym would work). You can do so many things on it, work every muscle group. You can put your hands on it to do push ups or your feet and the instability is really challenging. I'm glad I tried it, informercial that it was.
Foot/ankle lecture: I've never taken a lecture but this was very informative. It's made me rethink using the BOSU, or at least standing positions on the BOSU. I didn't realize there is a whole group of specialized trainers who go and only do these lectures. This class was full of people in regular clothes. At one point, we had to take off our shoes and exchange w/ our neighbors to check out their gait based on their treadware. I apologized to the guy who had mine.
I took a lot of classes but these are the ones that stood out in my mind. I was saying, if I could do those hi/lo and step classes I'd never run again!
