For about 15 minutes we practiced our steps today after I got home for work. Sometimes Im confused. At other times its his fault. I also have to learn to actually follow without talking too much. Ive always wanted to do this but was either lacking the time or the money. Well, actually both. Now that I have both (although not in abundance), I can actually enjoy myself and feel like an ADULT!
A little late but better late than never!
In case youre wondering, there are many reasons to participate in a class such as this:
- its FUN
- it gives you a workout...my thighs were definitely feeling it and this is the beginner class
- you can go to Latin night and not watch everyone else all night
- you arent sitting on the couch or complaining that there is nothing to do in Abu Dhabi
- Its inexpensive...100dhm per month for single and 180 for couple. Each set of classes lasts for a month and increases in difficulty as you progress (with free review classes if you drop in on a lower level class for a refresher)
Dont have a partner? Thats fine as well. We practice alone and then with everyone else. Even if you come with someone youll dance with others as people dance differently and one will need to know how to respond to the leader (the male), whoever he is at the time. Having said that, on a good Latin night (at a club) , you may dance with 8 different people, none of who dance the same.
I LOVE Latin dancing
(kids dont try this at home!)
