First of all click the button and I can tell you about me Salsa dancing.
I arranged a Salsa Night at Uni for last night, and although we didn?t have a great turn-out I have to admit that I enjoyed myself and I know that everyone else who came also had a lot of fun.
Salsa, and learning to to dance in general has never been something that I have been keen on, although I will get up for a boogie at a club once I?ve had a bit of dutch courage. On those occasions I wake up in the morning and realise that I spent the evening dacing like a twat, although at the time I though I was the king of the floor.
If it had been packed I would?ve sat by the bar and just watched and found other things to do, but I couldn?t really hide and so now I can confidently pull-off a few Salsa moves after just an hours tuition. Once you get the rhythm and understand the 8-beat of the music then moves are pretty easy, although there were a few occasions where I was wrong footed and had to get back into it.
It also has to be said that can be quite energetic and you?ll be getting a sweat on if you?re doing it right.
I would consider doing a bit more Salsa if the chance came along and I think it?s also a good way to meet knew people?.. plus the chicks dig it!
