I hope you had a good weekend.
First off classes this week are:
Monday 7:30pm - Argentine tango and salsa with social
Tuesday 6:30pm - Jive and Cha cha
Wednesday 7:30pm - Rock and roll and Lindy Hop with social
Thursday 6:30pm - Quickstep and waltz
Second, we have a new teacher joining us this week. If you have her for one of the group classes, then please make Jess feel welcome. We have not yet set up a webpage for her so you will need to come in and meet her to learn more about her.
Third and finally, I wanted to share an interesting article I read about hugs. Turns out that women benefit (emotionally and psychologically) a lot more from hugs than do men. You can read it here - https://www.theage.com.au/lifestyle/health-and-wellness/there-s-a-scientific-reason-women-like-to-hug-and-it-s-linked-to-stress-20220519-p5amny.html. The upshot for us as dancers is that one of the reasons women are more interested in dance is that they get this relaxation benefit from partner dance. As a lead, when dancing with a woman, work on a secure embrace that emulates a hug so that your partner enjoys the dance more. Something to ponder for your next dance.
See you on the dance floor
