Modern Dance Take Two

Last night was my second modern dance class and it was twice as hard with half the people as the first class. Ha! I guess it wasn't for everyone....

I am still not convinced it is a great workout, but I see how it could be once I master the basic moves and pick up the pace. For now though, it is a good stress reliever.

Modern Dance Class

I signed up for an intro to modern dance class in a moment of panic that my life was boring. I based this assessment on my SW workout posts, which look the same: run, run, yoga, run, run, run, yoga.

Salsa Mondays, First Class of October

Monday nights I take Jose's advanced salsa class at Sandra Cameron. I count it as a workout, because it's more than an hour dedicated to mind and body. And sometimes I do break a sweat. I'm blogging retrospectively now, so won't attempt to say what we learned on that first Monday of the month, but I was glad to be there. After I'm pretty sure I grabbed a fish taco at La Esquina with Gaby.

Dancing off Dinner

So I went swing dancing Monday night, but I think that may have been completely negated by the large plate of nachos I had for dinner....Darn people and their birthdays, forcing me to go out to eat! In other news, I realized why I stopped having a personal blog years ago.....I'm either too busy doing fun things to blog about them, or my life is so boring that I have nothing to write about.

5Rhythms: Friday Night Dance Meditation

I'd heard or read about 5Rhythms more than once over the past few years. It sounded like the "ecstatic" dance thing I went to at my neighbor's in San Francisco, where we blindfolded ourselves and danced around his loft pretending to be one of the elements, and then drank coconut milk out of a communal husk. Or the "dance jam" I'd gone to in Santa Cruz, where a young "witch" with a tongue ring had introduced me to contact improv. Both were amazing experiences, despite being mockable. I figured 5Rhythms would be similar, but could never quite pin it down. There were rumors it went down on Tuesday nights at Donna Karan's Urban Zendo, but there has never been any schedule information on that Zendo web site, and the people in the retail store couldn't say for sure. Deborah S.'s recent post about Spirit Weaves in L.A. got me thinking about it again, and then Sascha, Flavorpill co-founder and Social Workout landlord, said he went twice a week.

"What?" I said.

"You should come," he said.

And so I rushed from work to the Joffrey Ballet School last Friday, climbed up several narrow flights of stairs and waited impatiently in a line of smiling, patient people in a cramped hallway. Everyone was changing out of their street shoes, or sliding past each other to change into dance clothing in the bathroom.

"Don't leave your valuables anywhere," said the gorgeous young woman manning the cash box as I paid my $15. "Partner if it seems appropriate, and have fun."
