I was heading back to work the other night and came across a sight that I had never seen but of which I had been involved in many times. In the lobby of the building there was a couple dancing salsa. Whether it was for a performance, competition, or just for the fun of it, I don’t know but it brought a smile to my face. Over the past couple of years, I have done the exact same thing in the exact same spot. In may case it was for competitions or a performance. This stirred a warm and comforting feel inside of me. I’ve enjoyed competitions and performances in my time dancing salsa and usually once it was done I would have many good memories, feel the absence for a while and then move on with the other things going on in my life. After a long enough time, the longing fades away. However, as I watched this couple, doing what I did so many times before, refreshed the memories. For the first time in a while, the desire to have practices leading towards something flooded back into me. Part of me just felt like rushing up there and joining in…but I digress.
I must apologize for the lack of entries recently. I do mean to get back to it and will hopefully deliver a new entry soon. But speaking of entries, you may have noticed that I like using songs to tell a story. This concept is hardly new but effective nonetheless. Another thing, related to the performance aspect, is the curiosity of seeing how all of you express music through your dancing. A natural idea progressed from this: TDS has many talented individuals, would it be possible to make a show using those talents? Take a basic story and let the members of TDS put songs and choreography to it. Not necessarily a play, but more like a show where the songs follow the theme of the story and members interpret it as they are inspired. Anyways, just an idea I thought I’d throw out there. Any thoughts? Let me know…this could become something.
Hasta la proxima,
