I updated the tutorials page on Rince go Bragh. I think it’s worth checking out for these reasons:
Train Like a Beast Look Like a Beauty Workout
So this video is kind of cheesy, but it was my favorite of my workouts today because of the fast paced-ness of the video.
I am proud of myself because I didn’t stop at all (though, I did have to modify a few exercise because of my injury)! Can you say the same?
Another video for throwback Thursday featuring my dorm room from freshman year of college!
I think these are the first two slip jig steps I learned, and I’m pretty sure this video was taken four months into my dancing career, just before I started competing.
SARAH IS THE STEVE ROGERS TO MY TONY STARK I CANNOT CONTAIN MY ADORATION FOR HER TO THE POINT WHERE I CAN BE KIND OF OBNOXIOUS #1 RINCEFOREVER FAN
But really, she’s my best feis friend, gives great advice (and birthday presents!), and one of the most tenacious people I know. I want her to kick the ass of her projected recovery time and come back super strong so we can drink cider and play Cards Against Humanity after feises and majors.
You’re the best. I will bring Cards to the O. We can play whether I dance or not. ♥
Throwback to my reel four years ago, from a school that’s now closed. I was in novice or prizewinner at the time. It’s adorkably painful to watch.
Im glad to help, Nonny. There was a point when I first started dancing in which I didn’t want to compete, but instead, only to dance for my personal fulfillment and and performances I was invited to attend. My goals and achievements have changed over time, but that is because I personally felt they should.
As I’ve grown older, I’ve become a firm believer in do what makes you happy, and don’t listen to what others say. Except sometimes for advice. But even then, do what’s best for you.
I know I’ve been posting many different things about my surgery recovery here, but the newest post on Rince go Bragh includes pictures of what I’ve been doing.
Most importantly in good news: I am weaning myself off crutches and I will be starting physical therapy tomorrow! (A week ahead of schedule!)
I really, really love the tune for King of the Fairies, and I also love hornpipe rhythms, so definitely that, and definitely not at those ridiculous slow speeds because ew, no. King of the Fairies at probably 110.
I would want things in it that can disguise my ahem turnout issues. Also sassy moves where you drag you foot from behind in to the front. Toe work because I like that. Simple and effective rhythm elements. NO DOUBLE CLICKS oh god no. But some front clicks because I have good flexibility.
Basically, if I was allowed to take the set I just learned (Downfall) and do it to KoF, life would be wonderful. I really like my new Downfall, and both those sets have the same number of bars, but adding another set to the list of sets at dance class might make one of my TCs head explode because there are many different sets already.
Wow, you guys seemed to really like the video I posted yesterday, so here’s a different one from today’s workout!
Try this challenge! You work your core, and also your arms and stuff you you can have strong arms in your ceilis.
