How I discovered the joys of dancing

Updated: Feb 10

Sometimes its the things that scare you the most that are the best.


I split with my partner. It was a rough split and I moved across town to a funky inner city neighbourhood. There was a dance studio one street away. I was so scared to join my friend had to drive me the two blocks, I was actually shaking like a leaf in the car.

I entered the class as quiet as a mouse. The music started and our instructor welcomed me. I began to move in every direction at once, my body had no control and I fell. It was love at first fall.

That was my first Samba class. I've been practicing Samba for over 22 years now.

What's your Samba or dance story? Did you also have love at first fall?
