Salsa is also a perfect solo-girl activity. Salsa actually has social dance rules so everyone is respectful. And everyone is there to DANCE and not hook up. Plus I always have friends there even when I show up alone, no matter which club I got to. Hubby would probably prefer that go salsa dancing by myself than to a bar with a group of girl friends. Always good, clean fun!
It took me a while to finally decide which dress to wear, my three choices all had pros and cons, but I'm very happy with the decision I made. And also very happy I decided to wear nylons and shorts under it. There was one guy, while very fun to dance with, like to do lifts and deep dips. A lot!
|On a side note, I rarely wear lipstick, especially bright red lipstick. But since I had no one to smooch at midnight (and thus get lipstick on him), I decided this dress just called for some bright red lips!|
|Terrible form on my part, but fun. |
He really really wanted to dance with me.
|I'm going to be vain and mention that I hate my profile from the right side.|
I got to see a few people I haven't seen in a while, and met a few new folks who I hope to see out dancing again. It's kind of fun when I show up at the club now-a-days, since I've been out of it for so long. Most of the leads don't know who I am so they are pleasantly surprised when they realize I can actually dance. I was asked by several guys to come back out more often. :) We'll see. ;)
By the end of the night my feet and ankles were sooooo tied. I could barely dance. I had to muster all my good foot technique to keep from rolling my ankle. Stepping sideways was nearly impossible. At one point I had decided I was done and had taken my shoes off when one of my favorite leads who I hadn't gotten to dance with asked me to dance finally. So I put the shoes back on, then danced a meringue, bachatta, and salsa with him. Then his friend, one of my other favorite leads, grabbed me for another dance. After that, I didn't care who asked, my feet were DONE!
On another note: about the time I got home I got a text message. My sister FINALLY had her baby! Her water broke on Thursday!!!
