I took a leap into taking on something fun and exciting, something new this year! I ceased my inhibitions; went ahead and booked myself a couple of Salsa dance classes. Personally, I never really saw ME as a dancer-type. I mean, I did all those Filipino cultural dances, participated in cotillions including my own and did some 'modern' performances - but it never truly settled in me.
Also, one of my goals for 2011 was to work on my fitness. I've tried numerous times going to the gym but I seem to never stick to my training program provided. Fail! So, doing this again would just be a waste of time. However, I'm hoping this dance workshop will be a hidden motive for me =)
I had my first class this evening. I was a bit nervous as it was just me but I arrived at this little intimate venue in London Bridge - soon, before I knew it, my muscles loosened and my hips were on a roll. It was such a fun and friendly atmosphere, met some really nice people interspersed with the dancing. Learned the basic salsa steps together with bewildering turns... then stepped it up with partner work. Wah!
Its been another highlight to my day but one I am hoping to persevere with. In saying that, I will keep you updated on this new experience of mine. Ciao for now x
