A few years ago, I used to spend some time in a latin bar in Edinburgh. It was in some sense a typical club, full of sleaze, loud music and copious alcohol, but what appealed to me was the way that every once in a while, a couple would take to the floor and dance a Salsa that put everyone else to shame. Their fluid, graceful movements and full control of their bodies were an inspiration to me.
I’ve been to a few Salsa lessons, but never followed through with the commitment. Next year, I hope to learn properly.
