Well, I’ve been doing a lot more dancing since I moved and certainly in the last few weeks. I went to a Salsa on2 class on Jan 21st and a Salsa on1 class on Jan 24th, which was a lot more fun than Salsa on2. I returned to that same Salsa on1 studio for their first dance social of the year on Jan 27th.
I was pleasantly surprised at how many guys asked me to dance despite the fact that I did not know much beyond the basics. Praise Jesus for giving me the ability and talent to follow as well as I do because some thought I knew more than I actually do. Salsa is definitely not my dance, but it’s fun with the right dance partner. There was one guy who wasn’t as advanced as the others, but he still knew way more than I and managed to make me look really good on the dance floor.
The instructor finally asked me to dance and within seconds, the power went out in the entire studio!!! It took a few minutes for the staff to come up with a remedy, but they got the music playing again and the party continued. I left shortly after the power was restored. I was debating whether or not to take another Salsa class on Wednesday night, but I have decided to stay home and conserve my energy for the Swing dance on Saturday night. The last Swing dance in my area was on Dec 2nd, so I’m really looking forward to this dance!!! I pray, dear Lord, for good weather and a huge turn out because I need to get back into the swing of things, pun intended! 🙂
I’ve been going to the Elks Club every Friday for the last few weeks, but will miss it this Friday because I’m going to support a friend as she and others share their testimony.
I’m now debating whether or not I will take a Waltz/Hustle class that begins on Monday at another local dance studio. The funny thing is that I was going to ask the Salsa studio about taking a class in these same dances before I checked another studio’s website and found that they’re offering a special: 4 classes for $45 for the month of February. I really want to take the class it’s just that it’s on a Monday and I hate to go out in the cold. Knowing me, I will probably take the class.
I’m sharing this Cupid Shuffle video because it always motivates me no matter what I’m about to do. One of the ladies from church shared a video on Facebook of some people doing planks to this song!!! 🙂
