Sometimes you get asked to dance a social foxtrot – it’s friendly and fun, but boy it gets tedious after a while – the rhythm and the steps never change and there’s no passion.
Sometimes you join in to a samba beat – plenty of rhythm, plenty of passion but it’s over before you really get a chance to enjoy it.
Occasionally you get to join the hip-hop/street crew and that’s totally disjointed, difficult to understand and painful!
Ballet is beautiful, lyrical, passionate and totally mesmerising, but it can be wooden, fake and very painful.
Of all the dances my favourite is the rumba – it takes it time to warm up but there’s passion a-plenty, rhythm, feeling, tenderness and sensuality – I just hate it when that dance ends!!
But after each dance we always learn what we do and don’t like in order to become better dancers the next time we get asked 😉
