March is almost here and that means the Vancouver Salsa Congress is just a few days away! Close to home and always great dancers. The organizers have done a great job in developing the "mysterious" theme and catering it to an international audience of dance lovers. Looking forward to the Palladium night! (on2 baby!) As for this past weekend, the last show I attended was BQ Dance Theater's show of "Nincompoopania". Choreographer Carla Baragan's Ecuadorian aesthetic influence of mystic tales and imaginary folkoric characters never fails to dissappoint in her creative productions. What at first sight seems to be a world of alien encounters, slowly transforms into a children's world of play, discovery and competing wills. In watching these creative movers communicate without words and only detailed physicality, I couldn't help think about the way we all struggle to communicate thoughts, emotions and passions through the limiting use of words.

January flew! And I think this is the earliest I have noticed retailers bringing out the red hearts right after Christmas..but yes the Red Month is here. For those of you that insist on coming up with some standout gift, consider attaching a gift certificate to your most creative gift. (So you can really just gift yourself with a complimentary private lesson-yay! Only through 2/14) New class cycles begin on Monday: 6:30pm Social Ballroom (open level) 7:30pm Salsa. As always, the first classes always sets the tone and dictates the direction of the class, so bring your best! Beginner Salsa & Bachata has been moved to Tuesday nights at 7pm (at the Balorico Studio), Ladies Styling is offered at 8pm Tuesdays, in anticipation of returning to our co-ed Drills class in March.
