“Lets go dance!; just come watch me!!, you gotta keep all the guys off me”, so says my sis… and there I was just tagging along with her to check out the place…and accidentally signed up for the beginner lessons for the next 9 weeks.

It’s at “Step Up Dance Studio“, Level 1, 160 Castlereagh St, Sydney Australia, which is a few streets away from our apartment.


We’ve started the first lesson, Waltz, this evening. There are 2 instructors, 1 helper and 5 beginners including my sis and I. The lead instructor was quite talkative and friendly. I didn’t prepare anything at all to start with; my footwear wasn’t fit for dancing but still doable. I was the worst in the group, kept making mistakes with footwork but I didn’t step on others, just tripped my own steps. We are going to learn 9 dances in this 18 lessons. Details as followed:

I have no idea what all those dances are; I’ve heard of the names but don’t know which is which. So I shall see the differences and a few basic moves out of this beginner lessons. Overall, the first lesson was pretty fun and apart from keep tripping myself, I enjoyed it a lot.

There’s a social dancing session on Fridays which is open to all $15 for 3hr; instructor said it’s a good time to mingle with other dancers and practice your dance skills. Alrite, so whoever interested in learning some moves, you can join us and you’ll see me making a fool out of myself there. :P
