What (or who) originally inspired you to try Latin dancing? OR What are your first memories of latin dancing?
Describe a moment or accomplishment in your dance life that made you feel proud?
One of my prouder moments, when I was really exploring the salsa community in Atlanta, was when I pushed myself to do my first solo salsa performance. This came after one of my former dance partners decided to stop dancing with me, even though we had put so much work into a routine together. Though I was very let down, I decided to carry through with my goals and present myself as a solo performer. I came up with the choreography on my own, and it was the first time that the salsa community saw me in that light. I was super proud!
Social Dance Pet Peeve: (Hygiene, No connection, People who talk a lot while dancing, etc)
I would say one of my pet peeves in the social dance world is when somebody rejects dancing with someone after they have invited them to the floor to do so. I understand that everybody has the right to dance with who they want, but I also think that the purpose of social dancing is to go and dance with different people. Mostly, I really dislike it when someone of a higher level doesn’t want to dance with someone of a lower level. I think that the best dancers are those the dance with people of all levels of experience!
