sigelphoenix: (ballroom dancing)

You know, salsa is coming fairly easily for me, but I think part of that is due to the instructor's strategy - she started us off doing the one-two merengue step, so we could focus on partner connection and learning moves without trying to keep track of the salsa step. I don't know how you were taught, but this approach might work for you.

It's such a feeling of release, and getting lost in the movements. ♥

I totally agree. One of the things I find so appealing about ballroom/partner dancing is the way it works like puzzle pieces fitting together - lead does x, follow does y, no words needed. I know dancing is supposed to be about freedom and expressing yourself and stuff, but honestly, I'm bad at improvising and figuring out how to move on my own. :P I'm more interested in the gracefulness and physical connection of it, and that's a lot easier to accomplish (to me) in partner dance than other kinds of dance.
