Salsa Especial in Zagreb
April 7, 2008 § 2 Comments
I guess we made it 🙂 We barely made it to be precise, but luckily the shows were postponed for a sufficient period of time, that even Bu-Ba travel team managed to come (thank you Vladi & Daniela!). This time there were 13 of us. We started of as 9 people, but then counted ourselves and discovered we have one extra. So we needed to take another car and 3 more people. No problem! Maja refused for a while, but didn’t have to be asked more than 3 times. Plus two more and we were off! GPS took us to Zagreb (the 9 people went with our familiar Judo van 🙂 – no time for rueda this time!) and we came to our goal… well, almost. We just had to find the right number. A friendly people from Zagreb suggested where we should search and than we just looked up and searched for music and moving bodies. We found it! 🙂
After another logistic complication – 13 people paying in €!! (another thanks for the patience and understandng to the organizers, Los mamberos) – we changed our shoes … and the shows started! 🙂
Ok, I’ll let you see some first … but than click Keep reading!
There were quite a few premier shows. And I sure liked them all. After some local performances (Los mamberos team performed for the first time) and a sensual tango routine, Dado&Conny came with their new routine. I loved it! The musicality they did there and the way they were synchronized.. you don’t see that so often in salsa shows. Respect! Every beat in the music was portrayed with a move. Really cool. And U-tribe… What’s there to say… A real pleasure for the eyes. That lady had the longest arms I’ve seen and boy, can she use them in a way they look beautiful. By long hands it’s tricky – they can either make you look really bad, because you don’t know what to do with them or you can use them to their fullest potential.
After the shows party went on and we danced and danced and danced … That’s what we came for. Oh… and Domen had birthday so he got a really special present Salsa jam, which featured all guest and best domestic salseras. Lucky Domen 😉
Nice event. Can’t wait for the traditional July’s festival!! 🙂
