Last Fall I had to ask myself a very important question, why did I ever stop dancing. So I challenged myself to step out of the "adulting" box and start dancing again. Sometimes life will make you leave behind the things you enjoy, but I had allowed life to steal my dance for too long. I stepped out of my comfort zone and went to my first Dance 101 class. While waiting for the actual class I had come for, I watched the previous Salsa class and was intrigued. The next Saturday I tried it and was hooked. Never did I imagine this one class would bring me so much happiness and would take me on an unforgettable adventure.
This class would lead me to join the performance series after a much needed push by my instructor. There were some serious long nights, I have the foot pain and callouses to proof it. But what’s progress without pain right, exactly! And there was also something in it that was an unexpected perk, this group of ladies from all walks of life became dance partners and friends.
I say all of this to say, that if there is something that you have neglected in your youth that you think about starting again or if there is something you always wanted to try, please do it. I promise that there is so much attached to the opportunity and joy that you will find when you take the chance on yourself.
See our dance below.
P.S. If you’re thinking about adding a little Salsa to your life. Bene’s Salsa Blast can be taken at Dance 101 Alpharetta on Saturday at 10:30AM.
