So We Think We Can Dance…

Feather trim, sequins, floaty dresses, spotlights, high heels, mirror balls, music… Isn’t this what you see when you imagine ballroom or Latin dancing?
Heh heh…
Apart from the music and some flashing lights- we had none of those things last night!
But what a time we had.
It was incredible.
We started with a boogie, to sort of warm up, and then we learned to Foxtrot. After that we learned to Rumba.
Okay, I say we- I mean I learned… Glugs has done this before so for him it’s a case of waking up muscle memory again.
Our instructor was- in his words- pleasantly surprised. He said he had a great time teaching a couple who fitted together and complimented each other so well, and a couple who had talent! And I was complimented on my posture as well- which I always thought was dreadful.
I giggled, and we laughed, and we smiled, and I looked into my Glugs’ eyes the whole time we were dancing.
Aaah, bliss…
Halfway through our lesson- we were informed that we’d be taking part in a competition in June!!!
I promptly tripped over my Skechers… that’s like right around the corner!!!
I am terrified I won’t remember everything from week to week and embarrass myself… though there’s the upside that I will get to go shoe shpoping soon for some proper dancing shoes.

    Any excuse to purchase shoes is a good excuse. No pain on gain!
    Glad you are having fun and letting loose a bit. You have needed this for a long time.

    I would love to take lessons, but I seriously doubt hubby would go for it. Now if I wanted to play a game of hoops with him, that would be different.
