It’s 2 AM at the moment…and tonight was a success. I went to my local spot to dance and unsurprisingly, there weren’t a lot of people there tonight. I’m guessing it’s because of the rain, and second, there’s a dance cruise that’s happening right now and I’m sure a lot of the regulars went there. But I wasn’t going to let any of that hold me back. In fact, I felt better that there were fewer people, because there’s less chances of me bumping into anyone on the dance floor.
I had a good amount of dances in and of course some girls said no, but I never let it get to me. There was this one girl who I asked to dance, and she said no at first because she said she didn’t know how to, and even though I offered to teach her, she still declined. So I went up to her friend (Nina’s her name and she’s the pretty one) instead, asked her politely, and she also said she had no idea how to dance but that she was going to give it a shot.
Bachata is pretty easy to dance to so all I told her was to count to 4 each time and showed her the steps real quick, and she was able to get it, even though she was looking at the floor most of the time.
After the song ended, she asked for my name and introduced me to her friend. The next song came and her friend finally agreed to dance with me (win!). I danced with a few other people after them and at the end, I danced with Nina for 2 songs of bachata and ended the night on a good note.
I do wish the skill level of the dancers at this place was up to par with New York dancers, but I can’t complain. The point of tonight was to let go of any expectations and just dance with anyone who I felt wanted to dance, and just have fun with it.
I was able to do all that so I’m glad. Friday night’s going to be exciting so I’m definitely enthused about heading to New York and dance with as many women as possible, I don’t even care if the girl is pretty or not.
And should I take the Kizomba lessons before? I think I will, just because I stopped caring at this point and all I care about now is my own personal development. If I see Irina, I’ll just be friendly with her and that’s it.
Life is short so we may as well have fun with it while we still can.
