Monday Night Salsa Dancing at OK Koala

IMG_20170118_153813

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to become fearless and do things that make me feel uncomfortable. So, if I am afraid to walk into a bar alone that I have never been to, than I will do that. One of those things is dancing. I am terrible at doing that, and I easily get flustered and embarrassed whenever I try. Up until now, I have been avoiding Salsa Night at Koala. I had a very easy excuse. “But, I don’t know how to dance!” It was quite convenient.

Only, as excuses go, that one is pretty lame. If a person shows up at 9 pm, there are simple and free lessons where two people teach the moves and count out the steps and each of the movements. So far, I have been twice, and I have made myself at least try. Sometimes, I got a little flustered, and gave up. But, that doesn’t mean I won’t try again next week and build on what I learned the week before. The beauty of Salsa Night at OK Koala is that nobody really judges you on if you are a good dancer or not. It seems how much fun you are having is more important.
