Signed up!

I just got home from my last West Coast Swing dancing class. It has been an absolute blast. Dancing is never something I've done before, in part because I just never saw myself as someone who would be good at it (thankyouverymuch high school PE classes. Agk.) and partly because I've jsut never had/made the opportunity to do it. I wanted to do ballroom dancing in university, but I could never find anyone to go with me.

So long story short, I am now moderatley confident that I won't make a TOTAL fool of myself if I attempt to dance with another swing dancer. As long as they understand I'm a beginner and are nice to me! (I had a rather unfortunate incident with a much more advanced dancer a few weeks ago, but SHH, we won't mention that...) And of course, dancing with anyone at my own level is great!

Tonight was the last class of level one, and I was all sad, because I didn't think I was gonig to do level two untill mid to late January. But no! The three friends I've been going with and I are all signed up for the level two class that starts next week! Yipeee!

Bring on the whips*!

* It's one of the dance moves - get your mind out of the gutter! ;)

I have always wanted to learn how to dance. Especially how to dance without stepping on peoples feet.

And I did whip* someone through a set of swinging doors once while dancing. Right into a kitchen.
*Not with a real whip. Sheesh..

Swing dancing looks so impressive! I've always wanted to learn (unfortunately, I'm missing a willing partner!)

Niki's friend Shannon, who's here from back east, going to University, is taking swing dancing lessons, and loving it.
