Yesterday I took salsa lesson at Ball NY, where I had so much fun!!!And I want to share my impressions with you.
I am a Ballroom dancer from early childhood and that is what I will always be comparing with. In Ballroom dancing you have to keep your frame most of the time and be so concentrated on your movements and technique so sometimes you forget to enjoy what you are doing.
Salsa gives you an opportunity to free your body and just enjoy yourself and your partner. You feel that energy, music, atmosphere and it feels like there is no one else in the room, but you and your partner.
We kept changing partners and it gave an opportunity to dance different dances, as everyone leads his way and dance unique styles. There are no exactly same 2 people on Earth, the same concept is here: everybody dance in the way they feel it and its very unique.
The lesson took place in Ball NY Studio on 34th st – Herald Square, Manhattan and it was 2,5 hour long. Time flew extremely fast, it felt like 30 minutes though.
I am very grateful to my partner – Jason, who invited me to try out Salsa Dance Style and who supported me all the time out there. I think Salsa will definitely help us to get more freedom in our cha-cha-cha, samba, etc and to really enjoy our choreography.
It costs me $20 only but gave tons of positive emotions and stress relief.
They have other styles in the studio too, like Zumba, Tango, etc. This is how their schedule look like in case you want to try it out.
