In the beginning of the night everyone is invited to participate in a half hour dance lesson before open dancing begins. Bridget Hardy, the dance instructor leads the group lesson. Bridget walks everyone through the basic dance steps first before she begins to teach the partner sequences. Here are some photos of Sara and I learning a few dance moves!
Here is a group picture of people learning the basic dance steps at the beginning of Latin Night!
After the dance lesson, everyone joins in! Open-dancing has just begun and will continue for the next 2 hours!
As you can see, everyone is now dancing with a partner and moving to that driving Latin beat!
In this picture, my research partner Sara is dancing with Clyde. He is leading her through some basic salsa steps. Dance Sara, dance!
