Mates, my fellow Britons and salsa/bachata champions! Did you miss me?
I so missed you, but I had to be trained on blogging. Giles (dance teacher supremo, Amanda’s stand in in training) came and sat down and showed me what to do! So you know what this means, mi amigos? More posts! Mas y mas! It also means that my crush on Giles grows exponentially, it’s like <——–> wide already, and I giggle like a twelve year old girl when he’s around, and I twirl my hair, do figure eights shyly on the ground in front of me, and bat my lashes and – oh.
Wrong post. Moving on.
So, with great pleasure I bring you (in addition to more posts) are free Salsa classes on Sunday at Up and Down Bar in Nottingham. Oh goodness gracious me, I just don’t know what to do with myself.
Calm, jazzy must be calm. *fans self*
So, free salsa. At 21.00 hours.
But there’s list of classes before you go to the freebies.
We meet up at 19.00 hours. Amanda is a cracking time keeper, so you need to be there.
Beginner’s Boogaloo lessons at 19.00. I know what people are so going to be asking me, “Jazzy, what’s Boogaloo? Is it a meal?”
Boogaloo or bugalú (also, shing-a-ling, Latin boogaloo, Latin R&B) is a genre of Latin music and dance that was popular in the United States in the 1960s. Boogaloo originated in New York City among teenage Cubans, Puerto Ricans and other groups. The style was a fusion of popular African American R&B and soul with mambo and son montuno. It included the use of English lyrics as well as Spanish. Boogaloo entered the mainstream through the American Bandstand television program.
Thank you, wiki. With Amanda and Wilson, boogloo LIVES! LIVES! Mwhahaaha – uh, *cough*
Boogaloo lessons begin at 19.00. If you’re a todo latino member with a card (and if not, for shame. Come and join us, my lovelies. Lets spread the gospel together!) come on down! If not, come on down and be one! You know you want to.
A caveat about Boogaloo; the class is pretty energetic. It’s like jive, but with a bit more fluidity and flavour. So, grab a pair of comfortable shoes, dress in comfortable clothing, and have the best fun you can with your clothing on!
Who knows, one day, I might be there beside you, practising and doing my steps.
There will be Caribbean music – not ‘pure’ salsa. No, my Caribbean peeps, this is not a diss. Nor is it a drill, but you come and you might hear Daddy Yankee’s Gasolina cheek and jowl with Celia Cruz going, “Azcuar!” Come to think about it, that’s not a bad thing. It’s like cheese and cranberries, sounds weird, but oh so tasty.
You remember the steps, right? Good, you can show me then.
Adios, my lovelies.
One day, I need to learn more Spanish than hello, good bye and huh, no beer?
See you next time! With pictures.
