    Wow, I was just reading back over what I wrote when I introduced myself and I'm quite surprised at how much my attitude has changed. We're now going to take better classes (if mum will let me...still gotta get past that) and are already practicing medallist stuff. Comps are about equal to balls, because while they aren't as fun, at least there is room on the floor to dance.
    It's only been 6 months...

    amazing how it grows and takes over your life eh? You will have to give an update every 6 months or so...

    Yes, I expect in another 6 months I will be steadily working towards my silver medal.

    you'll probably have professional aspirations to go with that - if you don't already!

    If life doesn't get in the way, I hope so. DP and I have talked before when we first started and we both want to do Masters levels one day.

    Hi I'm new here. I love dancing too especially when I was younger, but now I need a little bit of confidence to show my dancing skills.

    hope I enjoy being here in the forum!

    Nice meeting you, everyone.

    What kind of dancing do you do?

    I just realized I haven't introduced myself yet so here goes . . .

    Born and raised in Amsterdam (NL) I have made my way to a tiny little village on the coast of Holland. I took a bit of a detour getting there though as I went via London (UK), Almere (NL), several towns in Luxembourg (L) and Igel (DE) .

    I'll tell the (relatively) short version of how I got into dancing (for the longer version click this link instead)

    I first learned dancing when I was still a wee boy. My mom was a former A level ballroom dancer in the Netherlands and she thought that dancing was a basic skill that everybody ought to learn.

    Maybe it is just because I heard it so often but I agree. Dancing is great fun and aside from that it has great health benefits. But as you're posting on a dance forum you probably agree.

    When I became a teenager I stopped dancing altogether though. Instead I focused on martial arts which I enjoyed doing for over a decade.

    Looking back it is amazing how many similarities there are between the two. Even though I did not realize it at the time I guess I never really stopped dancing until I was 26.

    Then came nothing. For a for a couple of years anyway. I made use of all the usual excuses. “I have too much work”, “my partner does not want to go”, “I don’t have time” etc.

    Eventually about 7 or so years ago, I saw a couple dance salsa and I have been hooked ever since. It has taken me quite a while to get started properly though but finally I am now on my way to becoming a Salsero.

    How long is ‘a while?

    Well, after 4 tries over a period of 6 -7 years I managed to finally finish my beginner’s class in spring of 2008. That is ‘a while’ ;-). I am glad that I did eventually go through with it though as now I am having lots of fun again.

    If you want to know more about me feel free to ask. Alternatively you can check my blog or look for me on FaceBook (just clicking the link will take you to my profile).
