SuperListenMode: 1st time learning Solo Jazz/Charleston

SuperListenMode: 1st time learning Solo Jazz/Charleston

Was super nervous at my first dance class several months ago. Usually I was avoiding eye contact when we were doing partnered dancing as I was super focused on learning, remembering all the different new moves, trying out moves and getting my own rhythm instead. Sweet music to get lost into & enjoyed being able to do solo moves, do what I want and own my mistakes without affecting anyone else that much. 

It was a super workout in the end when we finished at music with 200 beats a minute tempo whoa! :0 

I learned to just enjoy dancing by myself, 
dance along with someone else while we have our own respective moves, 
switching partners all the time [it took away the social pressure], 
the joys of wavy flailing arms, 
expressing how I interpret the music 
and letting go of being self conscious about what my body is doing or how silly I may look. :')
