Latin dance classes have been fun!
Last week we had to start in the Beginners 1a class.
Eh, I found it quite boring, because I already knew the basic steps. I felt like I was doing an hour of step aerobics, with very little room to move. There were 40 people in our class. Most of them were, like us, first timers… and everyone caught on quickly. It was very easy. There were apparently 100+ people in the function room (but all in different classes). Nice atmosphere.
So how the Beginners 1b class works, is — you grab a partner (usually the closest person to you), then EVERYONE stands in a big circle, you do a few step sets, then you move clockwise to the next person, and so on. In the end you dance with 15 or so people. And it’s a funny thing, because in 3 minutes of being 30cm from a total stranger, you can more or less work out what kind of dancer they are.
There was a…
Mr. No Idea of what PERSONAL SPACE means
Mr. Sweaty Hands After Only 2 Dances
Mr. Rubberband Man
Mr. Pushes His Women Around
Mr. Up Tight
Mr. Too Much After Shave
Mr. Had A Beer Before The Class
Mr. Moves Like a Plank.
Hehehe. It’s kinda cruel, but most guys were OK with their steps. Which apparently was the most important thing.
Andrew had some funny female characters to report, including :
Ms. Elephant Feet
Ms. Wear A Proper Bra, Girlfriend
Ms. Needs to Loofah Her Back.
I think I would be “Ms. Yo Asian Girlfriend, Loosen Up, This Ain’t an Exam”.
