I went dancing last night at the Salsa Foundation and think I became old.
The two young, petite, female instructors were wearing very short shorts. One of these tiny Asian women had her shorts so short the pockets peeked out at the bottom and her top covered the shorts at the back. To complete the ensemble she had some funky high-heeled dance shoes on. (These women were tiny, I looked like a giant in comparison.)
The other lass had on what looked like black underpants! Seriously. She also had on a top that covered her shorts and some sort of sports bra/crop top situation. I know this as when she was practicing for one of the classes with the male instructor she straddled his leg then did a backwards dip, then some groovy gyrating with her hips and her top flared up. She was also wearing high heeled boots.
I looked around at the class and decided that I didn't want to straddle any of the men's legs. So I didn't do that class.
I hadn't realized the dress code for this place or I might have got my Bikram yoga shorts and crop top out and teamed them with my high heel dance shoes. Actually, no one else was dressed like the instructors, they were the funkiest of the lot.
Anyway, it occurred I might be getting older when on seeing the instructors' outfits I was a wee bit shocked. Did their mothers know they had gone out in those shorts? Maybe they were off to work at one of the "Gentleman's Clubs" down in King St later?
The male instructor on the other hand was one of the most beautiful men I've ever seen. I had previously not thought it possible for a man to be masculine and beautiful at the same time.
So while the dance class was fun I don't think I want to learn to gyrate that much; I'll try somewhere else next week.
