My usual Saturday night salsa place was the busiest I've ever seen it. I am beginning to notice newbies do not ask me to dance. Despite the overabundance of partners, I only danced with maybe 8 guys whom I'd danced with before. And despite the limited number of people willing to ask me, I had to literally hide in a corner in order to take a break, otherwise, I was being asked by a new partner each time a new song started. It's fun but its exhausting. I always try to make it til closing time but leave an hour and some change before that. I get too tired. My last two dances were fast salsas but very good ones and I felt like I was sleep walking to my car, lucky there weren't any muggers out, I wasn't alert.
