It's been a little more than a month since I posted the video of Belle and me doing some freestyle moves. I've joined a couple of different on-line groups and ordered one DVD about choreography. I also discovered that Dusty has a lot of FS potential and is very flashy when he moves. Unfortunately, he alternates between being wrapped around my leg and having his nose stuck to the ground investigating some interesting scent.
Routines at the novice level in MDSA have to be between 1:15 to 2:15 minutes in length. There aren't a whole lot of songs that are that short, so I have been editing our music with Audacity. It's been a very intense and frustrating learning process, and I am now totally in awe of the people who do the sound mixing for tv and movies.
The video I did last month was composed of different clips joined together and the music was added after the fact. This time, the video is in real time and we are working to the music. (Since my video camera didn't pick it up, I had to dub it in.)
