In addition to going to my first Capoeira class last night, I tried Salsa for the first time last Friday. My Columbian friend organized a casual class at her apartment with 7 friends. It was tough and tiring! You need to be continually shaking your hips along with the music. For those of us, who didn't grow up shaking our hips like my Columbian friend, it was completely unnatural and, of course, I looked terribly awkward! But, it was a ton of fun! Fortunately, there was wine and beer involved with the class so looking silly wasn't a concern.
I feel lucky that I have gotten to try so many new things here: tango, salsa, capoeira, what's next?
