Salsa in the City

Salsa in the City
Current mood: artistic

Today was our first day of dance lessons! Every Sunday for the next 10 weeks we (me, Jenn, Leslie, Talia, Kristen and Valerie) will be shakin our TAIL feathers down at Dance Studio 101 (www.dancestudio101.com) at our own private lessons with George – the asian latin dance instructor.

Today we learned the basic Salsa steps – the front and back, the side to side, and the turn…we also learned how to shake those hips in a figure 8 and how to dance with a partner or alone!!! OHHH were we a dancin and a shakin..woo hoo.

Then George had us start with some basics steps for the Merengue – POP those hips – step step sep pop, And our homework..to practice movin our HIPS!!! hmmm…wonder how i can do that…..heheheehe

Next week we are brushing up on these and learning the CHA CHA CHA!!!!! So much fun we had today!!!

Can’t wait until next Sunday!!!


we can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
Cause your friends dont dance
And if they dont dance
Well they’re no friends of mine
Say, we can go where we want to
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Because you’re one far behind
We can dance
We can go where we want to
The night is young and so am i
And we can dress real neat
From out hats to our fee
Then surprise them with a big trick ride
Say, we can act if we want to
If we dont, nobody will
And you can act real rude
And totally removed
And i can act like an imbusil
Say, we can dance
We can dance
Everything’s outta control
We can dance
We can dance
We’re doing it more and more
We can dance
We can dance
Everybody look at your hands
We can dance
We can dance
Everybody’s taking the cha-nce
It’s safe to dance
Oh well, it’s safe to dance
Yes, it’s safe to dance
We can dance if we want to
We’ve got all your life and mine
As long as we abuse it
Never gonna lose it
Everything will work out right
I say, we can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
Because your friends dont dance
And if they dont dance
Well they’re no friends of mine
I say, we can dance
We can dance
Everything’s outta control
We can dance
We can dance
We’re doing it more and more
We can dance
We can dance
Everybody look at your hands
We can dance
We can dance
Everybody’s taking the cha-ance
Well, it’s safe to dance
Yes, it’s safe to dance
Well, it’s safe to dance
Oh well, it’s safe to dance
Ah yes, it’s safe to dance
Well, it’s safe to dance
It’s safe to dance
It’s safe to dance
