I *love* to dance. A few years ago my perfect night was going out and shaking my booty. Now I’m old and I get tired at 9 pm so my perfect Friday night involves jumping around our living room and playing Just Dance 2 on the wii.
Back in university I took swing dancing lessons with my friend Gord. I may have convinced him to take lessons with me by telling him that it would be a sure fire way to meet girls. We were total keeners and we practiced all the time. Then life got busy and that was the end of dance lessons.
Mr. Gazelle and I have decided that we do not want to middle school sway for our first dance. As soon as I googled “dance lessons Calgary” last week I realized that we better hurry up with those lessons. Time is ticking down quickly to the Gazelle wedding and we don’t have much time to get our dancing skills on! We decided to enrol in West Coast Swing lessons at Alberta Dancesport. What does west coast swing look like?
Our first lesson was a lot of fun…but naturals we were not. My previous lessons covered a different type of swing dancing. I’m sure with plenty of practice we’ll get there! Regardless, it is something really fun for us to do and learn together. I’m pretty excited about that! Are we going to go for some kind of serious kick butt first dance routine? I have no idea, but we are learning how to move and get comfortable with each other on the dance floor at the very least.
Did you and your significant other decide to tackle your two left feet?
