I attended my first lesson in LA salsa[1] today. I need to get some exercise, and I enjoy dancing, so when Josefin said she was going to go I hopped on too.

There were three guys and about 14 girls, who all seemed to have taked ten lessons. I could not follow the rhythm, mostly because the moves aren’t automatic yet, but I have no problem with that. I just need to work them into the brainstem and then start working on the finer points.

Of course, I may never get that far, but until then I think it’ll be great fun.

[1] There are apparently different versions of salsa. Cuban salsa is rotationary, while LA salsa is danced in line. There’s also New York salsa, but it’s not as big.
