Hey Charlotte Salsa Maniacs,
I want to thank all of you who were able to come out and join us. In fact, many of you came and brought friends too. Between the Tango Chicks, Salsa Fridays, My FB friends, and the word of mouth grapevine, including Charlotte Salsa Maniac first timers and regulars, we had over 50 people show up. Man, it was incredible. We overwhelmed the dance floor at times spilling into the isles, and wherever in A Piece of Havana we could find a spot to dance. We literally took over the place. It was a classic example of "party over here, Party over there, another party over here, and so on, and so on, and so on.
If that was not enough, the battery on the mic died, and I had to do the classes without a mic. Talk about losing my voice, and using hand signals, it was an adventure, and according to the feedback and emails I got, it worked. .. you loved it. I know I did. The most important thing was to have a good time.
I remember one of our new members, Shannon, in anticipation of attending her first Meetup with us asked me how should she dress? I replied: "..the best dress is a great attitude. Come to feast in the joy and make sure to bring a piece too. " Thanks to all of you, we did have a feast of joy. Thanks for your contribution to it all... Y'all really know how to dress to impress.
There were lots of request to take more salsa classes, either in group or private lessons. Plus, as I told many in attendance, if you get a group together, we will bring the salsa to you. Plus right now, I am working with some of our members and potential sponsors to have a weekend three hour salsa (with a some bachata and merengue) boot camp in June. Well more details will follow on all of this, along with how you can sign up.
In the meantime, we will be back at A Piece of Havana on May 17th, and I want to wish all the mothers in our group...in advance..a happy Mother's Day weekend and a Happy Mother's day with your loved ones. I don't know about you, but the first person to teach me how to dance was my mother. Thank you mother for the gift of dance.
See you all on the dance floor,
"the Professor, the Cat in the Hat"
