Spanish Not So Fly

So last night La Danseuse decided that class was doing really well, which meant it was time too introduce something new. We learned this across the floor movement where you have your hands on your waist in "Spanish Arms" (google scenes from Don Quixote for reference), and you walk (or promenade, maybe?) grandly across the floor, do some chassés and sautés, but while the footwork is easy, all the while you have to twist your upper body toward the moving leg while turning your head the opposite direction.

Um....yeah......not so much..... My head hurts just thinking about it again. But at least I know what I'll be practicing at home this week!
