9 things I learnt in my 1 year with Baile -de- Salon

Advanced salsera and now our trainee instructor Maneka completes a year at Baile -de- Salon


Here's her guest post on 9 things she has learnt at Baile -de- Salon
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I am not as good a dancer as I thought


But I am getting there super soon

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I for the life of me cannot find my core 


Much to the chagrin of my instructor Ajaz

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I am very patient...surprise, surprise!


Teaching Salsa is fun and I love my students

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Learning musicality is difficult


I wish I get that pat down, so Ajaz can stop rolling his eyes

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dancing has brought new meaning to my life


I cannot believe I stopped dancing for so many years…what with the corporate life sucking you in

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Keep an open mind and good things happen to you


Yeah…dancing taught me that!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dancing is an awesome way to get fit


I haven’t felt this good in a lot of years
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You are never too old to make new friends


Some awesome people I have met in the last year have helped me find my voice
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And most importantly, I have never been happier


I think it has something to do with happy hormones (read endorphins, exercising and all that jazz).
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
Thank you Baile-de-Salon for bringing the passion back in my life!
