Quick tangofest update
(Context: I took yesterday and today off work so I could attend Portland Tangofest XI
, which runs through Sunday. This is yet another one of those things that my former self would never have done.)
Thursday classes: awesome, okay, and sucked, in that order. I was somewhat intimidated at the practica, and only danced two dances, which didn't go all that well. After going to symphony rehearsal and then procrastinating at home for a bit, I went to the milonga, where I was extremely intimidated and didn't dance at all. But: I saw some amazing dancing, and that made it worth it. I also saw Joe and Jenna at the milonga--predictably, they were part of the amazing dancing.
Friday classes: awesome, fucking rocked my world, and good, in that order. And then the practica was fabulous. This time I was not at all intimidated, and I was able to tango like I've never tangoed before. In spite of having only about 20 minutes before I had to leave, I danced about four or five dances and loved them all. I am having a wonderful time.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to make it to tonight's milonga due to wonderful friends coming over. Ah, life is hard. Current Mood: bouncy
