Favorite Occupation: Salsa (Latin) Dancing
How often do you engage in your favorite occupation?
“On weekends I love to go out dancing to latin bars and clubs but I dance at home all the time with my boyfriend (who I taught!)”
What do you get out of it?
“Dancing has brought me such joy as it is part of my cultural identity as a Latin. It is also a social occupation for me as we dance during family gatherings and I have taught my boyfriend to love salsa dancing as well. It is great exercise that allows me to be creative and in-sync with my mind and body.”
What does it mean to your lyfe?
“Latin dancing in general brings a smile to my face regardless of whatever I am going through at the moment. It allows me to connect with my boyfriend and family in a fun and exciting way.”
Ok, I have to be honest with you guys, I have two left feet. Dancing has never been a strong suit of mine, although I do enjoy it. Where are my dancers at?
