I originally wanted to learn Salsa, and for me it started with an open evening around nine years ago. I had great fun and discovered there were so many other types of Latin dances as Kim introduced us to ‘snippets’ of Cha Cha Cha, Jive, Rumba along with the Salsa that I’d come to try. I was hooked!
After a couple of months my husband decided to come and see what all the fuss was about. He has a problem with his left foot but Kim has managed to work around that for him and he can now perform as well as others on the floor. Kim can get anyone to dance!
I’m now in the freestyle team with women two decades younger than me and I keep up! It keeps me very fit and I’m sure stimulates the brain cells. I also assist Kim with the children’s classes and that’s great fun.
We have made some wonderful friends over the years and gained a talent that will stay with me for a lifetime.
