“We should consider every day lost in which we have not danced at least once.”
– Friedrich Nietzsche
I hate sour faces on the dance floor. This isn’t the dentist’s office. There’s no reason to scowl while dancing. Unless that is your attempt at a “sexy face” – in which case, I apologize.
In a new regular Friday feature, we talk to Baila Boogaloo’s dancers about the moves, the beats, the nerves and the fervor. Today, we discuss pet peeves.
Q Tell me something that bugs you on the dance floor.
Sweaty palms. Just feels so gross holding wet clammy hands. Just take a second, wipe your hands and continue.- Kayanne D’Souza, performance level
Dance snobs. Thankfully, they are very few and easily avoided. – Zubair Towhid, advanced level
Groping. It’s very uncomfortable and distasteful when someone you barely know is trying to get a little “fresh” with you. – Joanna Lavoie, teacher
I hate hearing I’m not as good as the last person they danced with. What can I say? I’m trying. – Shawn Rippa, performance level
