Salsa

After 8 long years, I’m taking salsa lessons again. It all started when I saw this notice for a performance course and decided on a last min whim to go for the audition for the course. Thankfully, I cleared it and so I joined the 8-week class.

Two Weds ago, I also saw a new 4-week advance class opening and so I signed up for that too.

To date, I think the performance course is really interesting. I’m only able to satisfactorily do 80-90% of the moves… Which I’m rather disappointed at myself but I console myself in that if I could do everything, then the course would be a waste of money.

The advance class, unfortunately, was below my expectations. I think the problem is that some guys who are obviously not ready for the class are taking it and being a “lead-follow” dance, I’m limited in what I can do cos of this. The good thing is that social night at the studio falls on the same day as the advance class so I get lots of good practice there.

I still need to drill the on-2 count into my system. I can handle on-2 for most songs but when it comes to very fast songs, I still have a tendency to revert to on-1. Hopefully, with more practice, I’ll slowly rid myself of this “bad habit”.

Anyway, it’s been a super tiring week but I’m looking forward to salsa tomorrow. Being able to just focus on getting the count and dancing is quite therapeutic. 🙂
