My brother in law, Hean-Son, has started his own salsa school up. He used to teach for the Tango Salon, but has decided to try it solo. Su and I decided to go and support him and started the beginners class yesterday at the Dance Workshop. All went OK 🙂 beginner classes are pretty slow for people with some dance experience, but it was good to try something different for a change – I just can’t wiggle at all! hahahaha.. and I’m not used to the beat/weight transfer differences compared to lindyhop – I’ll get there. At least we could carry over the mechanics behind lead/follow, frame, etc over. And it’s great to see him in teaching action, after seeing him just socially/babysitting/gaming/guitar-heroing..
