I’ve learned and forgotten how to dance salsa a couple of times. It’s nothing like riding a bicycle. Muscle memory atrophies and my fleet-footed wife rolls her eyes lovingly when I bumble wrong-footed turns on sweaty dance floors.
My in-laws had been learning swing at Dance Passion and they told me about a Groupon deal, so I bought it and scheduled my lesson. Ivan and Dani are very friendly skilled teachers – they insisted on a back-to-basics approach which I doubted at first but quickly realized was absolutely essential to everything that followed.
The studio is clean and there’s always water with fruit in it to drink. I haven’t checked out their evening dance socials or group lessons, but they seem promising. I’m excited to have a good dance spot on this side of the bay. Maybe I’ll see you there.
