Last Friday night I went to the Latin Fiesta Ball, sponsored by the Latin Dance Club.
I wanted to got last year, but something came up. So this year, when my roommate invited me, I jumped on the opportunity. We both got all dressed up and got there in time for the lesson.
For the first hour of the dance, the Latin Dace club taught the girls and guys who showed up how to salsa and bachata. After we learned a few things they had everyone pair up to practice. The interesting part was that, even though I didn’t bring a date, I still got to dance with people. I think that, because we randomly paired up to practice, people were a lot more comfortable asking random strangers to dance. I danced with two people I had never met before (I had to leave early) and I found out that I’m actually pretty darn good at following a lead! The dance felt very old fashioned, but in a good way.
I really enjoyed myself at the Latin Fiesta Ball and I can’t wait to go again next year!
