I had my first Spotlight performance on Friday and it was a blast! A spotlight is a short routine that you perform in front of the other members of the studio to showcase what you've been working on...and to gain some performance confidence.
Eric, one of the instructors with Arthur Murray, was nice enough to teach me 5 or 6 salsa patterns. He isn't my normal teacher, but he was an absolute joy to work with!
We trained only three times in preparation for the performance due to a last minute decision to have me showcase a dance. I was a ball of nerves before the performance and ball of excitement and gratitude afterwards. You can see me relax throughout the dance. I didn’t mess up…aside from the ending…my back was too arched.
**Eric, Thank you so much for taking me on as a student! I enjoyed every second...even the frustrating ones!**
I just feel alive when I dance! Here is my minute and a half performance! Enjoy!
Side note: I think I have a booty! It's been a long time in the making. :P
I borrowed the skirt and am on the hunt for a slightly shorted, lower waisted skirt that is similar to this one.
