It was another good night salsa dancing at the Atrium Dance Studio in Pennsauken, NJ. The dance floor was filled with plenty of salsa babies. It presented the “regulars” an opportunity to dance with and meet new people.
I went early to meet up with my friend Diana. She did say that she was going to come early this time, but of course, she showed up fashionably late. At no fault of her own though. This time she brought a friend with her named Ana. Diana did her a great service and had all her amigos salseros dance with Ana.
It was nice of her to do that, because when you are a beginner you tend to be a little shy to get on the dance floor. You don’t know what to really expect, especially if its your first salsa dance.
I had a great time dancing with everyone and had a few dances with Diana.
Girls are most happy when their hair is horizontal and I managed to capture this moment. See the big smile on her face? Just remember to close your mouth and your eyes when you see hair coming at you!
One of the great things about salsa dancing other than the dance is the social aspect. You get to meet lots of people young and old from all walks of life. You really should make it a point to dance with at least 1 or 2 people you haven’t danced with before. You never know who you are going to meet – you may even make a new friend.
Amoung the people I met tonight was, Jena, a grad student from UPenn who has been dancing salsa for two years. She has traveled the world and may be able to give us a unique view and insight into salsa dancing. So, watch for her salsa article in the near future.
