We learned the very very basic steps of the rumba, foxtrot, waltz, and the hustle. We very quickly decided that we are not fans of the hustle. The rest were enjoyable though. I kind of like using the whole floor in the foxtrot! Our instructor was a fun guy and was pretty outgoing, which is just what we needed to break out of our shells a bit (we are engineers after all). He did a lot of the "BAM", "BOOM", "POW" business (apparently channeling his inner Black Eyed Peas?) but we'll forgive him for that.
At the end of the lesson, while we definitely didn't feel as though we were ready for the real deal, we at least had the confidence that we are capable of pulling it off. The instructor told Mr. M that he had a really strong posture (and kept calling him Tom, since apparently he resembles Tom Cruise) and that I dance really "light"... which I guess is a good thing because it means I'm not dragging my man around the dance floor. Go us!
We ended up signing up for an additional four lessons, and I'm pretty excited about it! Our next lesson is tomorrow, so I'll let you know how it goes!
Did anyone else decide to brush up on their dancing skills before the big day?
