Now that I have finally revovered from last weekend, it's time to reflect on NZ Salsa Solos and to dish out some well deserved thanks.
To my wonderful teachers, Donna and Warren - thank you thank you thank you - I could not do this without your continued support and encouragement.
Love you guys.
3rd in NZ - not too shabby!
Look out Brisbane!
I've really enjoyed this year and feel like my confidence is growing with the great experiences I've had so far.
I love the classes and feel that I've learned a lot thank you so much looking forward to next year. Thanks for everything.
I can't believe that I, a lifelong DANCE PHOBIC, have been dancing for a whole year!
I'm sure I'm not the first, and I won't be the last, but I thought I'd voice my appreciation.
It means a lot to me (even if I still suck hahaha The point is I'm enjoying myself, right?)
I have Donna, Warren, Michael, Shannon, Richard and Nicola, who have taught me, all the advanced students, who have kindly given me feedback, and the whole Latin Fire community to thank for it.
At any point, I was just as likely to run than I was to stay, and I might very well not have stuck with it had it been any other place.
Cheers for laughing with me, not at me (shuddup, Michael Hobbs!) , and thank you for making me feel so welcome!
