Tag Archives: utterly humiliating myself


17 Oct

So it turns out cha-cha – the actual Latin dance, not the electric slide – is hard. Who knew?

I went to a dance class today with a friend, Victoria. It was a bit off campus and I borrowed a buddy’s bike to get there, passing by the very new stadium on Renminlu. The dance class itself was pretty fun, even though I was visibly the worst. There may have been flailing in the wrong direction. (Maybe a beer beforehand would have helped.) Victoria, who is Argentinian, was much better than I was. Maybe next time I’ll get the hang of the moves.

And they played this song over and over and over again.

Over and over and over and over and over again.
