In a moment of pure madness (and mainly because I was literally dragged along) I started salsa lessons last night. I had very verrrrry low expectations, mainly because as much as I like to think I can dance (after a g&t or twelve) I really can’t. Ok, I can shake my hips to the beat, but moving feet and arms – together – why that’s just impossible!

However, after the bubbly instructor taught us the most basic of steps, I felt that I was actually catching on a bit and ‘getting into the groove’ as they say. In fact, halfway through the class, I was kicking ass. Literally. I actually physically connected my foot, albeit very briefly, with the rear end of the kindly middle aged lady in front of me. I have no idea how, I wasn’t even drinking.

She was very nice about it however and put it down to my complete lack of balance and rhythm. I will be moving to the other side of the class next week out of politeness though.

It was great fun in the end, and hopefully will give me the motivation to lose a pound or two. And hey, at least I didn’t fall!

But shaking your hips is all you have to do. Who cares if you can do it or how you do it as long as you do do it and have fun!! 😀
