Thank you!!!

This was a fun read. I literally laughed out loud (had to contain myeslf though, because I am at work, procrastinating as it is) when she describes smacking the Asian lady in the face, but not feeling so badly as karma allocated it's payback when said Asian lady stepped on her foot. But I also FELT for her when she said this line:

"I realized then that so much of dancing is about having fun, letting loose, and feeling the music, not about stressing over getting it just right. "

Man I can empathize. I know what it's like, just getting in the way of yourself. Unable to just let everything go by in a haze because you are so consumed with perfection.

The author is human. And it was light, but it was deep as well. Good job! Hope you continue with your samba classes- and I hope you develop and conquer Bahia style, as well!!! :)

to dance in such an environment is a very good feeling.

Some experts even think that tennis movements are interlinked with dance skills.

Samba is great, energetic, lots of fun. In any dance style there is always something new to learn , so just have fun with it!

Temperance and labor are the two best physicians of man; labor sharpens the appetite, and temperance prevents from indulging to excess.
