APRIL UPDATE
APRIL 27, 2010 12:33 AM

In April, I took a Bachata class (#6) through Los Sabrosos, a group dedicated to building the salsa community in Madison. I also took a private lesson with Jose from Dando Mambo, another dance company, to prepare for a little performance (#27) Chandon and I did for her benefit party. I got new dance shoes (#26) so that my feet will be happy when I dance all night a few more times this year (#33). I paired my shoes with coordinating leotards with ruffles (#47) which doubles as a step toward finishing all my unfinished sewing projects (#20). Dancing is on my mind and in my feet all the time (#34).
