I dance salsa and bachata for fun. :)
I'd like to one day learn west coast swing, though!


All videos are (mostly salsa) lessons from my studio, but I'll occasionally post a social dance if someone randomly records me and sends it my way. (which happens, like, 1% of the time, but still)

I've decided to support my dance studio during the pandemic and started to take private lessons! The first one was free, and I decided to go with bachata.

Am I embarrassed over how sloppy this is? yes....... sigh

This is the only bachata lesson I've done, but I love to social dance bachata and would probably upload some of those whenever socials are up and running again. :)

It's a reeeal peculiar feeling to look at this eight months later and think, "Wow... my balance sucked and my posture was awful."

It's nice to see that I've improved, though!

oh man, I remember being really proud of this one :,)

I think this was the week where I started to really see obvious improvement in my technique, because I no longer felt off-balanced during my spins. I still have some problems (especially with the pesky bow turn in the second video) but so much better overall!

>_> in which I took a 3.5 month break to save money and also because I hit a mattress with my car and I was carless for a while lol

Learned a new combination that focuses more on touch connection. Basically, knowing when/where to step by touch, even without being able to see the lead. Doesn't look too exciting, but it do be important.

More technique work! Fancy rubber band styling and a TRIPLE TURN AYYY

also I've already nailed prepping on 5, and have now moved on to prepping on 3 and 5, hence how I was able to do the triple turn. Progress!
