Quickie update:

I went to the Starlite medal ball yesterday to watch some friends dance. I had a good time and got to do some dancing of my own. There were fewer people there (both testing and in the audience) than usual; OTOH, that makes for more room on the dance floor. :)

I told the owners and some of the teachers I've worked with that I might resume lessons next month. It's a big if, primarily because I still don't know whether I'll have a job then. Also, I have to squeeze in time for lessons and practice in order for the lessons to be worthwhile. It will be somewhat easier to dance over the next three months because (AFAIK) we have no choral performances from January-March, so there won't be as much urgency to learn music. But I should expect to be preparing for some kind of piano recital around June or so. Finally, the adjudicator for the March Starlite showcase is a guy I really like to receive comments from, so I'm more motivated to resume dance lessons than I would otherwise be. We'll just have to see how things go.

Our first choral performance wasn't too bad. It could have been a lot worse. Before the performance some people were saying that they were having a lot of trouble with the music, but I didn't want to say anything that would make anyone feel even more uncertain. But there were no serious train wrecks. (There were some noticeable mistakes, but none so bad that they couldn't be recovered from.) My duet actually sounded all right (to me at least). I also thought the Reluctant Dragon soloists did a very good job.

Is there a specic term for the mistake from which one can recover? Other than "I meant to do that."

I don't know offhand. "Not a show stopper," perhaps?
