It started with Latin Dance.
March. March. March. Step out. Step out. Step out. This is pretty easy. I can do this.
Uhh…. Now I’m suppose to shake my hips? Add arms? You’ve got to be kidding me!
This DANCE is supposed to be sexy, beautiful and smooth. After all, the word ‘salsa’ means sauce, and associates with spiciness in Latin food, thus meaning ‘spicy’ or ‘hot’ dancing. The people on the screen were beautiful, flowing, sharp, smooth, and elegant.
You’ve heard the term “fish out of water?” It means, “Someone in a situation they are unsuited to.”
Yup, that was me. Unsuited for this type of exercise. Yup, I flail around like a fish out of water… gasping for air; flopping around to some rhythm that didn’t resemble the timing of the music. Now, I KNOW I’m not the only girl out there who is somewhat less than enthused about someday dancing in front of a room of family and friends only to been seen as a fool. This is why I only subjected the dog to my performance in the privacy of my own home. Even the kids were banished.
Oh well… I got some exercise. I even sweat. The music was fun. Besides, all that really matters is that burned a few calories.
I guess I will try it again today… and I’ll have fun because I will dance like no one is watching.
