Recap on salsa violence
August 1, 2008 § 3 Comments
This post seemed necessary after last nights party. If you remember, a few months ago I wrote about a campaign called “Stop salsa violence”, which was started by Tajana from Croatian Salsoteca. We were happy to hear we even got some support over the world.
Now back to yesterday… I swear I got stepped on, bumped, hit, smashed, splashed at least 15 times. And I’m not talking about innocent little bumps that get forgotten after a sincere ‘I’m sorry’… I’m talking about those sharp, pointed heels that almost come through your foot or they peel the skin of your ankle. Ouch yes! It was painful and to top it, I got walked over by men as well (not that that is something new ). There are many reasons why I stopped wearing heels at parties: first cause I want to dance comfortable, cause I feel more stable with whole feet on the ground and because it’s environmental friendly! Like I already suggested ladies – if you do wear heels, don’t step on whole foot, when stepping back! As for guys – don’t just impress your partner and the audience by performing all salsa moves you know, impress them with the feel and care for your partner. So, watch where you’re leading her and stay aware of your surroundings. I know the dancefloor gets too tight often, so adjust to that. Make everything small… Less is more! (eh, starting to repeat myself…)
But it felt good to let it out
I think,.. if I was to organise a salsa party… dresscode would be: HEELLESS!
