My salsa classes
I’m very proud of myself because I’ve been taking salsa lessons for a year now. That doesn’t sound like me at all. I usually get bored with everything so quickly! And yet I’ve been dancing for a year and I love it! I still suck at it though because I don’t have a regular partner and have to learn the temp and lead of like 10 different guys each time. But now it’s much easier for me to remember all those human pretzel movements that we learn every week so I stopped being so concious about new steps. They all have same patterns : you tangle your hands to the breaking point while moving your legs in the same pattern around your partner. When I get it right it’s the best feeling! I was never good at any kinds of sports so salsa makes me feel real good about myself, hehe..
These are my two teachers Sarah and Alberto. They are unbelievably good but always fight about which song to play because Sarah teaches beginners and wants to have a slow temp melody while Alberto teaches second level of beginners and wants us to die from dehydration with his fast temp salsa and tricky feet movements. One of these days they are so gonna break that poor poor ipod..^-^
This is me and Gow having a small break in between routines. After yesterday’s class we were so tired and went straight to bed as soon as we got home. As always Alberto has no mercy on us..^-^
